Picture my body

1 March 2012

In a hospital in Brussels surgeons are trying to surgically remove a tumour from a liver. And they are not alone. They are being helped by a sophisticated 3D computer model. It is just a practical example of what is called ‘virtual physiology’.

This Futuris episode shows how virtual physiology is already in use to better prepare surgery in hospitals in Belgium, France and Italy.
