Inside Information – How Visualizing the Human Body is Sparking a Revolution in Science Exhibits for Public Venues
Thursday 13.00 - 13.50 in: Nyan Cat
Medical imaging techniques have advanced beyond recognition in the last few years. Prof Anders Ynnerman will explain how these systems, normally the preserve of doctors and surgeons, are now being adapted to provide public visitor venues, such as museums, science centers and zoos with unique interactive learning experiences. By combining new medical visualization techniques with interactive multi touch table technology and intuitive user interfaces, this is opening up new ways for visitors to interactively explore the normally invisible and learn about the inside workings of the human body, exotic animals, natural history subjects or even mummies. Prof Ynnerman will illustrate this with examples of systems now being incorporated into public venues worldwide.
