However, the medical text has been used in other avenues besides just training medical students. For example, the TV show "Grey's Anatomy" was created as a play on words, referring to both this well known medical textbook and the name of the series' lead character. In addition, the TV series "The Good Doctor" has the lead character visualizing illustrations from Gray's Anatomy to mentally diagnoses a patient's condition.
This medical text has been around for a long, long time, and is still an active part of our current culture.
