MASA: Melbourne Academy of Surgical Anatomy (incl Surgical Anatomy Research)
A detailed understanding of how body anatomy forms the basis of clinical medicine.
Anatomical research in the Melbourne Academy of Surgical Anatomy (MASA) is underpinned by one of the oldest and largest Body Donation Programmes in Australasia and supported through our clinical networks in the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct.
With internationally recognised leaders in plastic, reconstructive and body and limb surgical anatomy, we are developing:
• New and refined methods for surgery
• The visualisation of medically imaged vasculature, and
• The 3D modelling of the soft tissues supporting joints
Our researchers have also been successful in clinical anatomy research that influences regional anesthesia and pain management, orthopedic surgery and dentistry.
Through our research and the broader activities of MASA, we aim to be a global leader in the advancement of clinical anatomy and to ultimately improve the care of patients.
