Establishment and Practice of the New Teaching Model of Maxillofacial Gunshot Injuries

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 269)


Medical education models play an important role in medical education, especially in military medical education. However, there are shortcomings in various existing teaching models of maxillofacial gunshot injuries. To resolve this issue, we integrated a dynamic simulation of image data to create a new, three-dimensional dynamic digital teaching model that was based on our previous completed three-dimensional finite element model of human maxillofacial bone tissue gunshot injuries. This model was applied to teaching practice with good results. The new model has helped us to achieve the teaching objective and improve the teaching efficiency.
