New Opportunities for 3D Technology in Medicine

Filed under : News

Physicians have till date been in two minds about the benefits of 3D technology. However, as their advantages came to the forefront even expert surgeons vouched for 3D technology. This change in perception is largely due to enhanced 3D glasses and screens. Practical implementation of these has proved the workability of this concept which until now was considered to be a theoretical concept which was highly impractical in real life. In the beta tests where expert surgeons too participated actively it is revealed that more than 50 surgeons were impressed with the 3D systems.

Dr. Ulrich Leiner who is the head of the Interactive media – Human Factors Department at HHI stated, “While the technology still requires some fine-tuning, technology that does without the need to wear special glasses will increase the popularity of 3D systems in operating rooms. In the past, surgeons were hesitant to use the technology precisely because of the glasses.”

New opportunities for 3D Technology in Medicine

As the research gets more and more deeper and improvised numerous models are being made available in the market which are to be used in medical applications. The latest breakthrough will be 3D without glasses which will be a revolution. With this in mind the researchers tried to conduct a test to assess if 3D technology has attained the required level of maturity which is needed for most hospital applications.

The surgeons who took part in the testing process applied it on four screen systems (2D and 3D both with and without glasses) along with a mirror apparatus which worked as an apt 3D model. The images were received through endoscopic cameras which the physicians used while simulating a normal surgical process. With a needle and thread the doctors were able to sew a wound with around 10 stitches in a model abdominal cavity. Here too the surgeons relied on the screen itself. The outcome surprised everyone as the procedure was time saving and much more accurate. Presently the 3D without glasses is likely to be the future technological advancement and breakthrough.
