Digital ArtForms has launched iMedic3D, a pair of 3D mice for the navigation of 3D medical image data from modalities such as CT or MRI. Combined with a software viewer, it allows the user to immerse himself and navigate the 3D data in a more natural way.
We took the opportunity to catch a demo of their iMedic3D system to bring to you:
More from the press release announcing the system:
iMedic3D is a DICOM visualization application that immerses clinicians in their 3D data. It’s powered by Digital ArtForms Two-Handed Interface (THI), a powerful object and viewpoint manipulation technology that lets users almost instantly position themselves anywhere in their data, looking in any direction, and at any scale. iMedic3D’s decluttering tools give users easy access to features embedded in cluttered or solid datasets. In a study funded and overseen by the US Army’s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) THI was shown to be 4-5 times as fast as a mouse in the hands of novices (47 minutes of training) and approaching 9 times the mouse in the hands of experienced users in the performance of fundamental 3D tasks. iMedic3D is available today without FDA clearance.
