Anatomical models are a very useful tool for physicians. These anatomical models range from the structure of the foot to the urinary tract and are an excellent tool for training medical students. With these models they are able to isolate, identify and diagnose diseases and ailments and abnormalities. Only once they have thoroughly grasped the details of these models they are able to move on to cadavers and later human beings. The female anatomical models are particularly essential to understand the female anatomy. On the other hand BSE-Breast self examination models are used to teach the patients on how to examine themselves to ascertain whether the symptoms of cancer are present.
Now let us take the example of a model of the ear showing the three parts of the ear. These models have a detachable eardrum with hammer and stirrup and a labyrinth with the cochlea as well as its attendant auditory balance nerve. Such a model can be used to demonstrate the problems shown up in a CT scan of a damaged ear with tumors or bone defects and a healthy ear. Even practicing physicians and specialists use these anatomical models for educating and reassuring the patients. A person facing surgery will be much more at ease if with the help of such a model he or she is explained the procedure. With the help of anatomical models as a visual aid the physicians can on one hand demonstrate to the patients the nature and location of the defect and at the same time the steps like surgery or medicinal therapy needed to treat the defect.
This kind of education and understanding ensures that the patient remains calm and cooperative before surgery and is also able to understand the restrictions and limitations that may need to be implemented after the surgery. The same is true with female patients who are educated with the help of female anatomical models. If a patient understands the working of the tendons and muscles in the knee, he will be more willing to keep the leg unbent after the surgery rather than being simply instructed not to do so. At the same time the communication between the doctor and patient with the help of these visual aids like BSE-Breast self examination models enhances the trust on part of the patient in the skills of the doctor. The doctor will also be more comfortable that the patient understands all the implications of the surgery or therapy.
