Info

Application of virtual (artificial) reality computer systems in medical diagnostic imaging, showing a magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the head next to a scientist wearing a headset. Computer scientists here at the University of North Carolina aim to distill various types of diagnostic images, (X-rays, CT, MRI) into a vivid digital model, that is displayed through the head-mounted displays. Advantages of this type of presentation include not being bound by screen conventions, such as a lack of step back features, wider area views & the need to control a keyboard or mouse. Future uses may exist in the accurate targeting of radiotherapy. Stereo tactic radiotherapy technique. Model Released (1990)
