Pathologic-anatomical Collection in the Narrenturm:
Pathology - on the seats and causes of diseases:
Different parts of the collection are presented by expert staff to the public. Using different methods of preparation, diseases and disease research will be shown and explained. Otherwise inaccessible areas of the collection can also be visited.
A view into the human body:
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an optical imaging technique similar to ultrasound. It uses laser light to generate high-resolution three-dimensional images in real time. Using this technique, the audience will have the chance to investigate the inside of a large variety of human and biological samples.
