IVALA® – Blog for Veterinary Students

Our patients are 3-dimensional, & the problems we deal with on a daily basis require us to engage with them that way. To date though, the majority of teaching material has focused on these concepts in just 2-dimensions. A concept that should be straightforward to understand, commit to memory & ultimately utilise for the benefit of our patients, all of a sudden isn’t.
We're changing that.

Anatomical terms for limb movement - new 3D scene in Language of Anatomy

Confused about the different anatomical terms used for limb movement, such as flexion and supination? We've added a new scene to our Language of Anatomy 3D module, as well as a walkthrough where Dr Augusto Coppi will take you through the essentials. Enjoy

The new Walkthrough Feature

You get a lot of information during vet school. In light of this fact, something we hear often is that it's hard to 'see the wood for the trees'. Having been there, we can empathise. Is it worth memorising the different innervations of the muscle of the hindlimb? If so, why? How is an understanding of the thoracic anatomy important radiographically? Are some cranial nerves more important than others?

Using realtime animations to understand veterinary anatomy

We've added the extrinsic musculature of the canine eyeball to our canine eye content. Watch animations of how contractions of each of the muscles of the eye deviate the eyeball, as well as the deficits that lesions of the nerves supplying the eye produce. We want to give you as much clinical understanding as possible together with your anatomy. Animations can be a very powerful way to do this. Expect to see them more in our content going forward.
