The Illustrated Human: The Impact of Andreas Vesalius lecture series continues Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium, Medical Sciences Building, 231 Albert Sabin Way with a presentation titled Vesalius: Presenting and Interpreting the Different Organ Systems. The four speakers, all University of Cincinnati College of Medicine faculty, will present on the anatomy of their respective organ specialties. They will discuss what Vesalius discovered, what he got right and what he got wrong being limited by the current functional understanding of the day.
Offering their insights will be Richard Becker, MD, Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Health and Disease; Alvin Crawford, MD, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery; Myles Pensak, MD, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Charles Prestigiacomo, MD, Department of Neurosurgery. With anatomy being foundational to these medical specialties, it is important to consider the role of human dissection in acquiring this foundation for research and practice.
