Giving Patients A Visual With Anatomical Models

Physicians try their best to communicate to their patients in a way that they can understand a specific medical situation. Since a majority of patients don’t have medical backgrounds, some medical terminology may not be understood or could potentially be misinterpreted.

We’ve found that physicians often prefer communicating with patients when they have a visual to reference – like an anatomical model.

How do anatomical models help?

  • Help accurately evaluate your patient’s anatomy
  • Improves communication between you and your patient and medical staff
  • Serves as a visual reference before, during, after surgery
  • Cuts down the risk of patients misinterpreting information
  • Anatomical models are accurate

Patients will appreciate the visual reference when communicating about a health issue or situation. For example, for a patient that has COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) we offer a Diseased Lung Model. This anatomical model is a full-size model of two separate lungs with 4 cutaway sections illustrating the anatomy and effects of COPD, cancer and asthma on the opposite side.
