IBM Research Unveils 3D Avatar to Help Doctors Visualize Patient Records and Improve Care

>In September 2007, IBM researchers unveiled a prototype visualization software that allows doctors to interact with medical data the same way they interact with their patients: by looking at the human body. This is like Google map in a human body. Although this software does not show the actual body composition of the patient, the doctor can show the patient the 3D diagram in order to explain to the patient. This is a milestone of medical. Probably we will have 3D x-ray in the future. –HC
