|The Virtual Temporal Bone|
The Virtual Temporal Bone is a tele-immersive program for distance learning developed by the Virtual Reality in Medicine (VRMedLab) at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This program allows a remotely located physician to teach medical students about the three-dimensional structure and function of the inner ear.
In this environment, the students and instructor may point at and rotate the magnified ear to view it from various perspectives. They may also strip away the surrounding outer ear and the temporal bone to more clearly view the inner anatomy.
