Not all of us learn well from flat 2D images and text. Professors, teachers and trainers realise this fact, because scientists and psychologists have developed a number of different models to understand the different ways that people learn best. One popular theory, the VARK model, identifies four primary types of learners: Visual, Auditory, Reading/writing, and Kinesthetic.

The doctor-patient consultation is a critical engagement process because it is a point which determines the diagnosis, treatment, or prognosis for a particular patient. However, because of several factors (60% of us are visual learners, this consultation is predominantly verbal, and may often involve non-familiar language to the patient), the average patient recall of this vital conversation is 14%, and only one-third of patients adhere correctly to their treatment plans.
Building a 3D Human. Phase 4: Internal Organs (Digestive, Respiratory, Urinary and Reproductive Systems)
After the completion of the Skeletal System, Connective Tissues and Muscular System, the next phase was to construct the internal organs of the reproductive, digestive, and respiratory systems. The majority of the organs were labelled and segmented from the VHP Data using 3dSlicer. Figure 1.0: Segmenting the organs using 3DSlicer
After the completion of the Skeletal System and Connective Tissues, the next phase was to construct the muscular system, which enables the body to move, maintain posture, and circulate blood and consists of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles.
After completion of the skeletal system, building the cartilage, ligaments, and connective tissues within the body was the next logical phase as along with the bones, these are the fibrous connective tissues that also provide structural support and protection within the body.
