The finished software includes anatomical training, an interactive 3D model of the hip joint, and videos of hip surgery with voiceovers. “We hope that our resource will improve clinical practice and the care of orthopaedic patients by providing online resources that augment existing training,” she concluded.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleHomelessness in Limerick going in wrong directionNext articleThree year funding delay for LEADER projects Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSAbbeyfealeBrid AherneBristollimerickRoyal College of Surgeons of EdinburghUniversity of Bristol Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Linkedin Print Emailcenter_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival WhatsApp Twitter Facebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more
