Knowledge of exact three-dimensional relations of the organs of abdomen and thorax is crucial for the therapeutic work and its success.
Thanks to cooperation with the Karl Landsteiner Private University for Health Sciences, we are now able to offer a targeted and solution-oriented course program.
Polishing and refinement of palpation skills through precise three-dimensional exploration
of anatomical structures of the abdomen and thorax.
Using specially prepared and preserved human cadavers all organs can be directly palpated and anatomically understood.
Due to the special preservation method, the so-called Thiel Emabalming Method (developed by Prof. Walter Thiel) the shape, color and consistency of the anatomical structures are preserved without hardening and alienation of the tissues as in case of formaldehyde fixaton.
Thanks to that the palpation of internal organs and all other structures is very similar to working on the living human body.
The course is conducted in small groups (max 8 participants) directly on the human cadaver under anatomical, medical and technical guidance.
