Virtual Reality—Technology and Advanced Medical Imaging in Medicine
This program is an exploration using the advanced imaging techniques of 3D software and virtual reality to get a better visualization of the patient to make informed decisions regarding the patients path to healing. The program explores the use of technology from radiologist to end-user physician and patient and how to use this technology as a tool for communication for healing.
