The Illustrated Human: The Impact of Andreas Vesalius, Lecture 5, "Presenting and Interpreting the Different Organ Systems," 2/15/2022, 12 PM, Kresge Auditorium & Livestreamed, University of Cincinnati
From Gino Pasi
A panel of UC College of Medicine faculty: Dr. Richard Becker, Dr. Alvin Crawford, Dr. Myles Pensak, and Dr. Charles Prestagiacamo, present the anatomy of their respective organ specialties. They discuss what Vesalius discovered, what he got right (usually the anatomy, the structures) and what he got wrong (typically the interpretation) being limited by the current functional understanding of the day. With anatomy being foundational to these medical specialties, it is important to consider the role of human dissection in acquiring this foundation for research and practice.
