Medical care providers often rely on visualization
for diagnosis and treatment of patients. Imaging technologies such
as X-ray, CT, and MRI scans provide them with 2D slices of the area
in question. For appropriate decision making, a clinician must be
able to reconcile the patient’s 3D body with this series of
2D images. This burden can be eased by providing the data directly
in a 3D format.
Advances in computing power and image processing technologies allow us to extract 3D models directly from any series of medical scan images. We can generate these models on-demand. We specialize in orthopedic visualization, but can work with clinicians to generate models of almost any part of the anatomy.
The images above show results obtained
while employed by the University of Michigan Virtual
Reality Lab. Models can be visualized in many mediums.
Interactive web applets can facilitate information sharing
with colleagues and patients. The data can also be converted
into a physical model through the use of a stereolithography
