Using aurasma augmented reality in forensic pathology - YouTube

A short introduction to the use of augmented reality in teaching - in this case forensic pathology - using a free app from Aurasma.com.

Richard Jones's insight:

 

I have been exploring how augmented reality might be integrated into my forensic pathology teaching, and this short video illustrates how 'value can be added' to pictures, using the free Aurasma.com app for tablets and smartphones (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/aurasma/id432526396?mt=8).

Images Of Disease Lite

Images Of Disease Lite | Pathology education | Scoop.it

Get Images Of Disease Lite on the App Store.

Richard Jones's insight:

Based on a collection of interactive images at http://web.med.unsw.edu.au/pathmus/ this app from the University of New South Wales, Australia aims to supplement teaching in pathology with annotated images of diseased organs.

 

The app comes in a free 'Lite' version containing a limited number of images, and a paid-for full version, which contains a large amount of reasonably good quality images. Each image comes with a short clinical history which is valuable.

 

Many of the images can also be found at https://www.best.edu.au/slice/featured which aims to increase the number of annotated digitised whole slides available for teaching, learning and sharing.

Virtual histopathology slidebox

Virtual histopathology slidebox | Pathology education | Scoop.it

Department of Pathology, University of Iowa

Richard Jones's insight:

This site offers an excellent selection of 'virtual microscopy slides' that you can navigate and magnify. There are slides covering a host of general pathological processes, as well as systematic/ organ pathologies.

 

Slides relevant to autopsy pathology/ forensic pathology are also well-represented, including a slide illustrating the effects of rickets on an infant rib (in the 'Cell injury, inflammation & repair' section) - something that is often poorly represented in photographs on the internet and in textbooks.

Fulton County Online - Rapid and Complete Access for all
Richard Jones's insight:

 

Randy Hanzlick, a forensic pathologist in the USA, provides this handy set of tutorials for completing cause of death statements; it is clearly aimed at a US audience, but the principles are broadly applicable world-wide, and there are some useful case examples to work through.

Virtual microscopy in forensic pathology - cardiovascular system

Microscopy is an essential component of the practice of forensic pathology, and the following article draws together good examples of digital microscope slides relevant to autopsy pathology of the cardiovascular system available on the internet.
Richard Jones's insight:

A great way to learn about histology, and histopathology, is by viewing 'virtual microscope slides'.

 

Post mortem microscopy is an essential component of autopsy pathology, and this collection of virtual slides covers important pathological findings in the cardiovascular system, including atherosclerosis/ coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction.

 

When you view the slides, try to recall the acute inflammatory process, and the consequences of ischaemia in the heart.

The General (External) Examination

Richard Jones's insight:

 

This is a well-crafted overview of the clinical examination of the external surface of the body - whilst it is aimed at clinical medical students, this will also be of interest to trainee pathologists, as the lesions identified in the living can also be recognised in the dead patient, and may provide clues as to the cause of death!

Richard Jones's insight:

 

This Augmented Reality app is simple to use, and provides a high resolution skull model which can be manipulated by hand gestures (rotated and magnified). Options include the ability to explore the skull with and without the component bones being individually coloured. There are no label pins, however, unlike the excellent iSOFORM 'BoneBox' skull viewer for the iPad.

10 Steps to Surviving Your First Autopsy - The Almost Doctor's Channel

10 Steps to Surviving Your First Autopsy - The Almost Doctor's Channel | Pathology education | Scoop.it
Richard Jones's insight:

A thoughtful article about a 'first autopsy experience', which identifies the feelings and emotions passing through the writer's mind when observing an autopsy for the first time.

 

Medical students are frequently not well-prepared for their first autopsy experience; it is not the same as cadaveric dissection - although this will have at least exposed the student to the concept of death and their own mortality - and probably deserves to be given much more attention in the modern medical curriculum.

 

Students taking a Student Selected Component (SSC) in my own department take part in a classroom discussion about the autopsy prior to their first observation, focussing not only on the 'mechanics' of what they will see, and what to do if they feel 'odd' during the procedure, but also on their feelings regarding death - particularly sudden and possibly traumatic death - and empathising with the patient's circumstances prior to death.

 

Pathologists should not under-estimate the potentially traumatic effect on a young mind when confronted with sudden death, and we should all take the time to try to prepare students mentally for their autopsy observation, which is an excellent opportunity to learn about pathophysiology in action, and revise their clinical anatomy.

Social work and substance use (teaching guide) :@ Social Policy and Social Work Subject Centre

Social work and substance use (teaching guide) :@ Social Policy and Social Work Subject Centre | Pathology education | Scoop.it
SWAP is producing a series of guides to support academics in their learning and teaching practices
Richard Jones's insight:

 

The population of patients seen in forensic medicine/ pathology frequently includes those who have misused alcohol and/or drugs.

 

This teaching guide is aimed at those teaching social work students, but it contains much of relevance to undergraduate medicine. It focuses on how students can be introduced to substance use/ misuse and reflect on their perceptions of people who misuse drugs and alcohol.

 

It could be a useful source for clinical academics involved in preparing students for ethical practice in the community, as well as in emergency medicine settings.
