Matan (1T7) Berson spent the summer of 2016 working at the Toronto Video Atlas for Surgery (TVASurg). Berson collaborated with the TVASurg team on the creation of an interactive web applicationthat allows users to manipulate and explore the 3D anatomic models shown in the Video Atlas.
Now in the second year of the MScBMC program, Berson intends to apply the technical and design skills he developed on this project to his master’s research project and he hopes for future opportunities to create interactive applications for medical education on mobile, web and virtual reality platforms.
TVASurg team members include MScBMC alumni Albert (1T0) Fung, Paul (1T1) Kelly and Joy (1T3) Qu. Part of Perioperative Interactive Education (PIE) at the Toronto General Hospital, TVASurg creates training tools for surgeons, which combine surgical video with animation.
