Revolution in Medical Holography

Scottish company Holoxica - which has a proven track record in making digital holograms for teaching hospitals and research centres - has released the project of a 3D video device that generates live holograms based on input from computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners. Through the project, which has been supported with EU funds, it will be now possible to produce 3D images that observers can view without cumbersome props. Base these displays on input from medical imaging devices and you could have the makings of a powerful new way to view patient scans.

Instead of viewing patient scans in a mere two dimensions, doctors who have access to this innovation would be able to examine 3D representations of scanned organs in real time and use these displays to explain their findings to their patients, or plan surgery.
