Cross-sectional imaging such as CT and ultrasound have rapidly developed a central role in diagnostic medicine. However, cross-sectional anatomy has lagged behind in its incorporation into medical school education, often leaving students without even a basic understanding of these images. At Hannover Medical School, we have successfully combined hands-on ultrasound workshops performed by medical students on other students with our anatomy course. This interactive component of our anatomy courses improves our students' understanding of clinical anatomy and introduces them to ultrasound imaging.
