50 radiological anatomy images were annotated with labels and programmed into the Facebook messenger chatbot to automatically quiz users for correct answers when prompted.
Users are able to access this chatbot with any desktop or mobile device that has a working internet connection.
They are able to connect via the web link https://m.me/anatomyhero and through the Facebook Messenger app on their phone after first connecting via the web link (Fig.4,
Given its accessibility,
the platform provides the ability for users...
While anatomy itself has not undergone significant changes in many years,
the approach to learning has .
