Google SketchUpIf you enjoy drawing or creating 3D models on computer, then you must try Google SketchUp. It is a lightweight, yet very powerful application that allows you to sketch virtually anything in 3D. For instance you can make a plan of your office or living room before you set out to change the flooring or apply new colors to the walls.

But it may be used for medical purposes as well.  With a large collection of already available models,  you may explore 3D models of various medical devices (similar to Second Life the virtual world), thought this might be a more hands on approach for students and patients.  Here are two of my favorites, a linear particle accelerator:

and a GE gantry:
