Specialist medical education is changing to reflect current trainees’ needs. Detailed anatomy is becoming a post-graduate subject and increasingly doctors must learn anatomy as part of their early specialist training. Interpreting complex 3D subject matter often requires a strong grasp of the 3D anatomy to which it relates. This is compounded when procedural techniques and specialist anatomy are effectively taught simultaneously. However, it has been shown that anatomy learning can be augmented by the use of high-resolution 3D models. To this end, we developed a resource facilitating training in musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging of the foot and ankle. This application had the specific objective of integrating the teaching of specialist 3D anatomy with clinical procedure and image interpretation.
