Virtual Reality (VR) technology in the medical world
The development of Virtual Reality (VR) technology has penetrated the world of medicine. With the presence of this technology, can help doctors see the inside of the patient's body in detail.
Reported from Techcrunch, EchoPixal technology like InnerSpace, but that does not mean that a doctor can find a disease suffered by the patient. It only displays medical imagery that allows a physician to define areas of trouble from MRI (Magnetic resonance Imaging), CT, and ultrasound scans using 3D glasses and special screens. CT is a medical imaging diagnostic tool that uses anatomical means to perform imaging examinations of functions, metabolism and body receptors, can detect appropriately without injuring the body.
Most doctors see a 2D CT scan, which means they can not see all the details of the body, making it harder to find the problem appropriately.
With EchoPixal and 3D glasses, the inner organ is displayed on the screen like a hologram, so the doctor can check from any point of view. This technology can also reduce costs and time for patients and hospitals.
Information can be adjusted for a particular procedure, and the doctor easily enlarges and issues problems when scanning the patient's body so that a strange lump in the intestines is easier to find and scrutinized. The capabilities of 3D technology can enlarge the small part of the body so it is helpful to treat newborn babies.
EchoPixel refers to the interactive VR technology, though unlike Vive or Oculus.
