Deep Dive™ Urology

This spring, global medical education company Understand.com™ announced the addition of Deep Dive™ Urology to their expanding collection of Deep Dive™ interactive web applications. Understand.com™ visualizes the complete urinary system for both male and female anatomy using medically accurate 3D models and elegant illustrations. Audio and written descriptions accompany the interactive and offer a comprehensive understanding of the anatomical structures and pathologies of the complete urinary system.

Patients can now access Deep Dive™ Urology by visiting their physician’s website from the privacy of their home; while medical device reps can review the urinary system while waiting to talk to the surgeon in the OR. Deep Dive™ Urology allows information seekers to study the kidney and urinary tract in the healthy state as well as affected by a variety of diseases and conditions, including polycystic kidney disease, kidney stones, renal failure, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, bladder infection, incontinence, UTIs, and urethral strictures.

All Deep Dive™ content is reviewed and approved by medical experts to provide users the most accurate and current medical information and to ensure that all 3D models and illustrations are anatomically correct. Doctors and healthcare companies can further customize the Deep Dive™ Urology by populating it with their own media, i.e. surgical footage or medical imaging examples.

“We are proud to add Urology to the Deep Dive™ Collection as the urinary system is an important and complex topic for both patients and healthcare professionals to understand,” said Darik Volpa, founder and CEO of Understand.com™. “This was a great opportunity for us to take a sensitive medical subject and create a tasteful yet detailed web app that invites users to confidently explore the material in a way that is comfortable and informative.
