Visualizing the medical data explosion: Anders Ynnerman on TED.com

Posted by: Jenny Zurawell

Today medical scans produce thousands of images and terabytes of data for a single patient in mere seconds, but how do doctors parse this information and determine what’s useful? At TEDxGöteborg, scientific visualization expert Anders Ynnerman shows us sophisticated new tools — like virtual autopsies — for analyzing this myriad data, and a glimpse at some sci-fi-sounding medical technologies in development. This talk contains some graphic medical imagery. (Recorded at TEDxGöteborg, November 2010, in Göteborg, Sweden. Duration: 16:37)
