The Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) is currently constructing a modern, future-oriented multi-purpose learning space at the JKU Faculty of Medicine’s new medical education and research building. Scheduled to open in 2021, the space will not only be used as a virtual lecture hall for anatomy courses, but will also provide live surgery broadcasts from operating rooms to improve student education and post-graduate educational courses. The JKU medSPACE will be modeled after the Ars Electronica Center’s Deep Space 8K.
When completed, a new groundbreaking environment will be available for mediation and interaction purposes as well as visualizing medical information. Top use-case scenarios in the Virtual Anatomy Room include high quality, vivid and photo-realistic visualizations of medical information, such as MRIs and CT scans, for educational and training purposes.
The Virtual Anatomy is a joint research project between Johannes Kepler University, Ars Electronica Futurelab and Siemens Healthineers. The dome video version was realized in collaboration with the project.
