The purpose of this thesis is to produce interactive tutorials that veterinary students can use to explore concepts that are often difficult to conceptualize, including (a) change in joint function, (b) muscle action and innervation, and (c) recognizing and locating normal vs. abnormal structure and function. Elements of this thesis include a complete 3D skeleton constructed using a series of canine CT (DICOM) files, illustrated overlays on video footage of a dog undergoing examination, and short interactive self-assessment tools. Students will be able to deconstruct and toggle components of the skeleton, as well as view the animated skeleton superimposed over video footage of a dog in motion, to investigate numerous aspects of locomotion.
