Anatomy.TV for Speech Language Pathology

If you’ve been following the blog posts over the last few weeks, you would be aware of how useful Anatomy.TV can be for a number of disciplines. This post looks at how Anatomy.TV can be used to help with study for Speech Pathology courses.

Anatomy.TV has a dedicated Speech Language Pathology module under the Clinical Specialties tab. This module includes a wealth of information on a range of Speech Pathology topics.

Struggling with Anatomy and Physiology for Speech Pathology? Anatomy.TV has all of the resources you need to improve your memorisation and practice your identification skills outside of the lab.

Jump into the head and neck module of 3D Real-Time to play with a fully selectable, rotatable, and customisable 3D model of the head and neck. Use this to see structures in context, to look at how different structures relate to each other, and to generally practice your anatomy memorisation! Make sure to refer back to the Anatomy.TV 3D Real-Time blog post for tips and tricks of how to make the most of this platform. Play with the labeling section to create your own, custom images for study purposes, or even create blank labels to print and test yourself and your friends.

Struggling with the cranial nerves? Check out the cranial nerves section under the Anatomy tab in the Speech Language Pathology module! Here you will find 3D models and informative text about each of the 12 pairs of nerves arising from the brain. Memorise each nerve and its branches, and visualise where they run using the rotatable 3D model. You can also add and remove layers to see more or less context around the nerves. When you’re ready, test your knowledge of the different nerves using the Nervous System quiz in the Quizzes and Activities / Interactive Learning Activities for SLP module!

The Speech Language Pathology module also contains a selection of clinical slides, providing images of a range of clinical conditions, such as vocal fold polyps, glottis stenosis, or unilateral vocal fold paralysis. Click through the Anatomy Illustration slides for comprehensively labelled illustrations of various relevant structures. To read up on dedicated Speech Language Pathology information, use the Clinical tab to open a pop up window with information on the mechanism of swallowing and voice production, articulation, evaluation procedures, vocal disorders, and swallowing problems. There is also a section of information sheets geared towards patients under the Patient tab.

But that’s not all – Anatomy.TV’s Speech Language Pathology module also provides useful animations and videos for phonetics and swallowing disorders! Access phonetic animations of 24 consonants (voiced and voiceless) and 19 vowels to see how each different sound is produced. This will help with identifying and explaining how to form different sounds. Animations can be saved to your computer for offline study, so you can watch them as many times as you need! You can also access animations demonstrating the swallowing process and examination movies including a modified barium swallow (normal) and an example of a videostroboscopy. Use them in presentations or assignments to add interest and demonstrate the concepts you are discussing!
