UBC Faculty of Medicine Receives Significant Tech Boost from London Drugs Foundation

PRESS RELEASE — Thanks to a generous donation from the London Drugs Foundation, first-year medical students at the University of British Columbia will be the first in Canada to use a new state-of-the-art 500-pound, 5-foot by 3-foot 3-D anatomy visualization table.

The Swedish “Sectra” table and technology allows students to interact with digital patients in detail, using a “virtual scalpel” revealing human anatomy and physiology that will greatly enhance traditional teaching in the lab.

UBC’s Dr. Bruce Forster, head of UBC’s department of radiology says, “Medical imaging has become a critical component of patient diagnosis and treatment in virtually all medical disciplines.”

The London Drugs Foundation is extremely proud to be able to continue its commitment to health and education with the donation of this first-ever Sectra table to the UBC Faculty of Medicine.
