"NEW DELHI: Imagine autopsies without cutting through the body or diagnosing a disease on a 3D image of your body - all on an iPad-like table.

The Sectra Virtual Autopsy Table, which was displayed at the Swedish embassy here on Friday, provides a totally hassle-free way of performing an autopsy or making a diagnosis. It is also meant for students of medicine.

– It allows examination of virtual representation of real bodies in minute detail. The 3D images help in giving quick medical opinions, the inventor of the table, Professor Anders Persson, said. He was in India for demonstrating the table at the Health Innovation Day under the Sweden-India Memorial Week 2011."
