This news item is about: That creature on the surgical table isn’t Frankenstein’s monster, but with its realistic tissue and organs, it comes close. The College of Veterinary Medicine has introduced state-of-the-art artificial canine cadavers on which veterinary students can practice their budding surgical skills.
