This news item from the Cornell Chronicle is about: Cornell veterinary students can now get a leg up in learning equine anatomy, thanks to a custom-designed app created at the college. Students of VTMED 6101 (Anatomy of the Horse) were the first to practice taking radiographs of a horse’s carpus – equivalent to the human wrist – with the Equine X-Ray Positioning Simulator this spring. Developed by a team in CVM’s Educational Support Services (ESS), the augmented reality app superimposes a digital image of a horse limb onto the surroundings seen through an iPad. “The students were so excited and seemed to really enjoy the technology,” said Allison Miller ’03, D.V.M. ’07, lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Sciences and the Department of Clinical Sciences, who teaches the eight-week equine anatomy distribution course.
