Paper Abstract

Physicians in the early part of their training inevitably undertake a course in Anatomy. Unfortunately, the amount of training medical students have with real bodies has decreased. This is further exacerbated with the increasing gap between numbers of medical students and resources available. Medical faculties worldwide are increasingly turning to video training sessions as a complement to practical sessions. This paper presents a number of automated content access and enhancement tools which have been designed to alleviate the difficulty of editing these sessions. The system is being deployed at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
