The proliferation of three-dimensional and augmented reality representations offers significant advantages for the accumulation of spatial knowledge regarding human complex structures. Interestingly the interpretation of complex applied medical sciences often requires a strong grasp of the 3D anatomy to which it relates. In practice the obstacle to learning is compounded when procedural techniques and specialist anatomy are effectively taught simultaneously. However it has been shown that learning can be augmented by the use of high resolution 3D models and intuitive human-computer interaction. In particular this study investigates the structural complexity of the human anatomy with emphasis to the inguinal canal region.
