Good news for Chrome users who love medical animations. Blausen Medical Communications has just released a beta version of its free Chrome browser extension (available here) that automatically scans text on a website and links it to its library of animations. So, for example, if you search for “prostate cancer,” an icon appears next to the resulting text that, when clicked, displays an animation explaining the condition. According to Blausen’s press release:
The app searches among 2,000 keywords related to over 450 medical topics. After the word is highlighted, a user can select one of four presentation modes: 3D animations with or without narration, 3D derived illustrations or 3D models. In some cases there are multiple content topic options, as well definition and feedback features.
The beta extension is demoed in the following video:
