    This paper presents a novel approach for interpretation of Computerised-Tomography (CT) scans. The proposed system entails an automated transfer of selected CT scans onto a default Virtual Reality human model. Contemporary training requirements often are proven to be time-consuming for the clinical facilities which have to split unevenly their operational time between radiological examinations and the Radiologists’ training. Adhering to the contemporary training requirements we employed a plethora of VR and Human-Computer Interaction techniques in order to enable the trainees to familiarise themselves with the interpretation of such data and their actual, spatial correlation inside the human body.
