DIGITAL DESIGN STUDIO
The Glasgow School of Art have established a satellite medical visualisation lab of their Digital Design Studio at the the Centre for Health Science.
The Digital Design Studio is dedicated to 3D visualisation and interaction through academic, research and commercial activities. The Digital Design Studio is involved in world leading research to digitally document human anatomy at a level of detail greater than ever achieved before and to develop 3D visualisation and haptic (touch) training tools for the medical professions.
In partnership with NHS Education for Scotland, the Digital Design Studio set up a medical visualisation lab in the Centre which is looking at virtual head and neck modelling as well as looking at the shoulder anatomy and surgery. The 3D visualisation will then create digitally enhanced teaching material for dentistry and oral surgery and provide opportunity for education of all groups of healthcare workers.
