Last year, EchoPixel, a Mountain View, California firm, received FDA clearance to introduce its True 3D Viewer, a platform for visualizing CT and MRI exams in 3D. The company has now announced that it is releasing the viewer that, thanks to a partnership with HP, now will run on the Zvr Interactive Virtual Reality Display.
Physicians wear a pair of glasses that work with the Zvr display to produce 3D images. The True 3D software provides a lot of visualization tools that allow the user to manipulate patient anatomy in different ways. A pen can be used to grab the viewed objects in 3D space and intuitively move them around, view slices, and zoom in and out, among other tasks.
Here’s a quick video showing off EchoPixel’s True 3D technology, though you really need to use the system itself to experience the 3D effect:
