Anatomical Sciences Education Vol. 7, Issue 1, 2014 Cover Image


ON THE COVER: In response to a Letter to the Editors from Drs. Cornwall and Stringer in New Zealand regarding cadaver CT scans in gross anatomy courses, the ASE Editors received additional letters from schools in the United States and abroad commenting on this practice. One of the letters was from Chika R. Nwachukwu, Ph.D., a current fourth-year medical student at Mayo Medical School. Chika, who had taken a human anatomy course during her first year in medical school and served as an anatomy teaching assistant during her third-year, commented that having a CT of their cadaver significantly enhanced her learning. The Mayo course, featured on the cover, utilizes cadaver CTs as an integral part of the anatomy curriculum. These Letters to the Editors are published in the current issue of ASE.
