Virtual Autopsy Table Using Multi-Touch Technology

This was just too cool not to pass on. Norrköping Visualization Centre and the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization in Sweden have developed a multi-touch screen table that uses high resolution MRI and other image types to create a 3-D virtualization of the human body. The multi-touch technology means that you can slide and move the body image around with your fingertips as well as use a “virtual knife” to cut cross sections and look from various layers and angles.  Check out the short video below to see this thing in action:
