Anatomage Table

This operating-bed sized table provides highly accurate, 3D visualizations of human and animal anatomy.

Use the Anatomage Table on the main floor of the Taubman Health Sciences Library to virtually examine the human body through advanced medical imaging of cadavers.

The table’s interactive touchscreen interface allows for an immersive, hands-on approach to the study of anatomy and physiology, an innovation that has led to its adoption by many of the world’s leading medical schools and institutions.

With the table, you can:

  • Virtually dissect full-scale images of actual human and animal cadavers
  • Remove layers to reveal bones, muscles, nerves, veins, and arteries 
  • Make incisions with digital tools and examine the cut from any angle
  • Explore thousands of real medical cases
  • Annotate structures and save your views with a screenshot or make a video of your screen activity 
  • Support your work with interactive quizzes and color coded self-study tools
  • Tap on a blood vessel to see annotated blood flow animations
  • Fly through internal anatomy to simulate endoscopic procedures

Use the table online

While building access is limited due to COVID-19, the Anatomage Table is available 24/7 to support online instruction and research using TableOnCloud, which works through your web browser. Watch our video overview — highlighting features such as a dissectible beating heart — to see what's possible.

Access is available to U-M faculty, staff, and students, as well as Michigan Medicine clinicians and allied health professionals. Reservations are required to receive login information.

Demonstrations may be requested for courses and groups. Please see the TableOnCloud Tips document for details.

Make a table reservation

  • If you are a U-M health sciences student, faculty, or staff member, you may reserve the table any time the library is open.
  • Other patrons are welcome to use the table during the library’s public hours, 9 am – 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Members of the U-M community can make a reservation during this time.
