Virtual Autopsy Table: Death Goes Digital With Multitouch Table (VIDEO)
*See video below*
The new Virtual Autopsy Table lets you examine the inside of a human body in 3D -- without the body.
The new educational tool was created by processing high-resolution MRIs and CT scans to create an interactive, 3D image of the inside and outside of a human body.
Using the Virtual Autopsy Table, users can use the touchscreen to "remove specific layers of body" in order to look at the brain, heart, skeleton, and other organs, and even "cut throught the body with a virtual knife," according to the Virtual Autopsy Table demonstration video.
The multitouch table was developed by Norrköping Visualization Centre and the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization in Sweden.
