Oculus VR came and became famous in mobile phone industries, gamers but EchoPixel is a medical imaging start-up that lets doctors locate problem area from computerized tomographic (CT) scans by means of 3D glasses and a special display. CT scans are viewed in 2D; This means that they cannot see around in a 360 degrees making it harder to locate the exact problem spot.
True 3D Viewer, from EchoPixel, is an advanced medical visualization software solution. It offers physicians an unprecedented opportunity to view and interact with patient tissues and organs in a truly 3D form, as if they were real physical objects. It renders patient-specific anatomy in an intuitive, interactive virtual reality format, leading directly to increased clinical knowledge, faster operations, and better care.
EchoPixel CTO Sergio Aguirre says “It is really a shame that doctors are still using the same 2D images designed in 1880” lol. With the new technology, internal organs jump out of the screen like holograms giving doctors the ability to virtually examine a patient from angles unlike the former 2D image scanners.
The technology will radically improve healthcare for hospitals and being one of the most fascinating ways Virtual reality (VR) will enter into healthcare. EchoPixel has raised $5.8 million and now selling three year subscription to its services for $25,000 per year. As a radiography institute, you can make an order from EchoPixel in other to bring a newer dimension in medical experience.
