School district purchases digital Human Anatomy tool

Local News

SAN BENITO, Texas – The San Benito CISD is beginning instructor training in order to improve their medical program.

Known as Anatomage, instructors begin working with a digital visualization station meant to show students about anatomy with a life-size diagnostic tool. The imaging table was purchased by the district earlier this year. The goal is to better prepare health science students at the high school level.

Amanda Muniz, CTE Health Science, Sometimes explaining the flow of blood, sometimes the kids can’t imagine it. If they see it, it can help them learn it.

Jaime Ibarra, CTE Health Science, We’re planning on incorporating it already in the last couple of weeks within the programs for this year and immediately introducing it in the upcoming years.

Prior to acquiring the new equipment, instructors tell us they used to rely on animal dissections and posters. Now they can explore human anatomy in a digital environment.
