Imaging science is playing an increasingly important role in all areas of medicine.
The Weill Cornell Visualization Facility is the world’s first high definition 3D virtual reality environment. It uses the highest resolution blended images possible, projected on three walls and a walk-on floor. An interactive tracking device, worn by the primary user, coupled with a hand-held electronic wand to manipulate the images, allows multiple researchers to “move around” simultaneously within a three-dimensional data set or structure.
3D immersive technology at Weill Cornell Medical College enables visionary breakthroughs in biomedical research – Vanessa Borcherding, System Administrator, Institute for Computational Biomedicine (ICB) at Weill Cornell provides an in-depth look at how Christie’s 3D technology is utilized.
