Visualization Table Allows Users to Interact With Real-Size 3-D Images

November 29, 2010 – A new visualization table features a 46-inch medical multi-touch display where multiple users can interact collaboratively with the real-size 3-D images. The Sectra Visualization Table helps give users a deeper understanding and insight into the functions and processes inside the body.

Users can, for example, visualize different kinds of tissues and cut through sections with a virtual knife.

It improves decision-making in acute care, and also serves as a platform for medical education, clinical conferences and virtual autopsies.

The visualization table is powered by a tailored Sectra PACS workstation. The company’s visualization techniques allow immediate display of even the largest datasets, such as high-resolution, full-body scans.

“This is an example of how our close cooperation with research centers allows us to apply the latest technology available in solutions that facilitate daily work for our customers,” said Torbjörn Kronander, president of Sectra Imtec AB. “We have a strong focus on customer value, and the technology should not be there just because it is possible, it should help to increase efficiency and quality in patient care at every step.”

Another area of application is virtual autopsies, in which the need for surgical procedures is reduced and saves time.

The table was developed in cooperation with the University of Linköping, Sweden, the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), Norrköping Visualization Center C and The Interactive Institute.
