Forensic Odontology: using game tech to train dentists in the field

Ranya Al Ghazi, a Masters student at the University of Dundee, received a Collaborative R&D Voucher to create a prototype digital training tool for Forensic Odontologists. The resource can be accessed anywhere to train users in identifying a disaster victim from dental data. Ranya plans to commercialise the tool for use in higher education and dental practitioners.

Students from Abertay University’s Professional Masters in Games Development worked with Ranya and the InGAME team to scope, design and deliver the prototype.
