3DInMed Presented Latest Developments at MEDICA 2016
The 3IT project 3DInMed, a cooperation between various partners from research and industry was showcased at Medica 2016 in Dusseldorf on 14-17 November. Digital stereo camera systems offer new possibilities to extract and visualize additional information resulting in significantly enhanced conditions for diagnostics and surgical interventions. Shown were the latest research results for measuring, tracking of medical instruments, augmented reality applications (AR) and optimized 3D playback.
Positive feedback was received from all sides, including engineers, surgeons and product managers. It was emphasized that the developed methods and proposed solutions within 3DInMed are of high relevance for digital 3D imaging in medical applications.
Both exhibits can be experienced in our 3IT showroom.
