How to use "Dissected" in context?

When I heard the word "dissected," my mind automatically flashed to a gruesome image of a dissected body. But I was immediately surprised to discover that dissected is not only a noun, but can also be used as a verb. Dissecting, when done correctly, can help researchers to learn more about the workings of a particular organ or system, or to analyze a diseased tissue sample.

Dissecting is often a required step in biomedical research, as it allows scientists to study the inner workings of an organism without having to destroy it.
