Abstract

Advances in radiology combined with the advances in computer technology have made the 3D (three-dimensional) representation of anatomic structures easily obtainable using CT and MRI. The data sets resulting from CT and MRI examinations commonly consist of hundreds or thousands of slice images. 3D imaging processes and integrates this image data volume and extracts more meaningful, derivative images via primarily multiplanar reconstruction. The pilot study regards the use of the Visualization Table at Linköping University Hospital. This is one of the first studies including clinical doctors, now being presented by the University Hospital in Linköping, Sweden. Prior experience has shown that the visualization table provides valuable features that improve understanding of the operations field in a new way.
