1 May 1994 Virtual reality in radiology: innovative applications of PACS in neuroradiology
Author Affiliations +
Neuroradiologists require rapid access to large multislice, multisequence image datasets, as well as tools for planning interventional procedures and predicting the probable outcome of an intervention. To address these challenges, we are integrating virtual reality (VR) technology with a large-scale picture archiving and communication system (PACS). The VR-based applications that we are developing include a `virtual view box' for rapid browsing and pairwise image comparison of large datasets using a head-mounted display (HMD), and `virtual intervention' tools for planning, simulating, and executing interventional radiology procedures. VR in radiology offers novel, `hands-free' techniques for image navigation, simulation, and teleintervention.
