PURPOSE: This study is based on a debilitating medical condition, common amongst athletes, iliotibial band syndrome. The study looks at how deep knowledge obtained from cadaveric dissection, can be integrated with medical visualisation technology to deliver benefits in two key areas: clinician-patient communication, and clinician education and training.

METHODS: By combining anatomy knowledge through cadaveric dissection and computing skills (using a variety of software packages), a 'virtual laboratory' was created as an education tool for use in various settings such as clinic, classroom and laboratory for virtual dissection.

RESULTS: The goal of creating a user tool for education and communication

PURPOSE: had certain specific objectives. It was important that patients and clinicians could relate to the model. It was also designed to improve the experience of clinicians who had commented that their own earlier training would have been enhanced by key features within the model. We created accurate three-dimensional models generated from computed tomography, high resolution cryosection images of the male visible human dataset and surface anatomy, generated from a white-light scan of an athlete to use in this training package.

CONCLUSIONS: Experienced clinicians who regularly treat iliotibial band syndrome were excited by the potential of the model and were extremely keen to make suggestions for future enhancement.
