The Virtual Autopsy Table is a unique new medical visualization tool that allows people to explore the inside of a human body. With its intuitive gesture-based interface, the Virtual Autopsy Table totally changes the way users interact with volumetric medical data. Multiple users can interact collaboratively and simultaneously, working with large and complex data to gain deeper understanding and insight into the functions and processes inside the body.
The Virtual Autopsy is already utilized successfully to complement conventional autopsies. It dispenses with the need for invasive surgical procedures, allowing medical experts to see things that would be difficult to discover with traditional methods. The technique can also be applied in many other areas of health and medical practice.
The Virtual Autopsy Table is the result of successful co-operation between the RTO Interactive Institute, Norrköping Visualization Center and Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV). In 2010, the partners developed and launched a product aimed at the clinical market together with the Swedish medical IT company Sectra.
