The prize is awarded by the Eurographics Association, which organizes a biennial competition to acknowledge the contribution that computer graphics is playing in the medical field.Sectra’s visualization table is a large touchscreen with an image viewing program. The 3-D images are taken by modern computer tomography and magnetic resonance cameras. The students can simply zoom in, rotate or cut into the visualized body without using a scalpel or destroying the body. Accordingly, the same images can be used again and again, and the students can, for example, study the impact of various diseases on the anatomy in a manner that was previously impossible in training.The award is presented to the following research partners who jointly developed the visualization table: C-research, Linköping University; the Interactive Institute Swedish ICT; the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) and Sectra.For more information: www.sectra.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 10, 2019 Medivis SurgicalAR Gets FDA Clearance Medivis announced that its augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications, SurgicalAR, has… read more Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 20, 2019 TeraRecon Receives First-of-Kind FDA Determination for Northstar AI Results Explorer Advanced visualization and artificial intelligence (AI) technology provider TeraRecon has successfully completed a U.S… read more A 3-D printed model (left) and a model constructed in augmented reality (right), both of a kidney with a tumor.
