The top-rated provider of enterprise imaging technology, Novarad Corporation, is releasing its augmented reality software for higher education to institutions at a reduced price.
The OpenSight™ Augmented Reality System for Education offers students and teachers an immersive and interactive experience using a 3D holographic view of any donor study displayed using the Microsoft HoloLens 2 headset. The holograms can be manipulated through voice commands to adjust the rotation, zoom, display properties, and highlight different anatomical parts using pre-set values to show bone, soft tissue, and organs easily.
The company developed the software to display patient studies within a 3D virtual space and overlay them over the patient’s body for seamless interaction. A host of advanced technologies have been incorporated into the system, including 3D imaging, advanced segmentation and rendering, virtual tools, and 3D annotation.
“OpenSight is a gamechanger for education. Students get to use the latest technology of augmented reality to fully experience their anatomy labs and even participate in virtual labs. Now they can ‘see through the donors while viewing the donors,’ so to speak, and they can slice through the different anatomical areas and view them in their natural placement before dissection occurs,” said David Grandpre, Senior Director of Product at Novarad.
“This gives students an additional level of anatomical experience and will make anatomy class more memorable. It is priced specifically for education,” he added.
