An interacive visualization table from Sectra is in use at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden to assist in medical student training
Visualisation table assists student medical training


Karolinska Institutet (KI) is to introduce Sectra’s interactive visualization table in its anatomy training. By interacting with 3D images of actual patient cases, students gain an enhanced understanding of the body’s anatomy and functions, the variation between individuals and better knowledge of more unusual diseases during their training. KI has chosen to link its table to Sectra’s training portal, a unique concept for sharing patient cases and knowledge with other seats of learning around the world that use Sectra’s table.



Karolinska Institutet is one of the world’s leading medical universities. In Sweden, KI accounts for slightly more than 40 percent of academic medical research and has the largest offering of medical training. KI will use Sectra’s table in all training programs that include anatomy training, meaning the medicine, dentistry, psychology, physiotherapy, biomedicine, dental hygiene, speech therapy, ophthalmology and midwifery programs. The teaching of anatomy comprises about 1,600 students per year.



With Sectra’s interactive visualization table, students gain access to a multitude of actual patient cases, which means, for example, that they can study anatomic variations and disease progression in many different individuals. Another advantage of the table is that the students can repeat their virtual autopsies and dissections again and again.



Sectra’s interactive table is used to train medical care staff and veterinaries in more than 20 countries in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
