New data-display technology developed at Kent State University will provide doctors with an improved ability to evaluate commonly used medical images. The technology allows for interactive viewing of large image data sets from virtually any medical imaging device. The new system is compatible with all imaging devices, will translate and display data immediately and in its entirety, and allows for user- friendly manipulation of the data for evaluation and analysis.

While the technology can be applied to any large 3D or 4D data set, it is most readily applicable to medical images. For instance, CT scans generate large 3D and 4D data sets. The new technology will produce 3D, high-quality, real-time images of the data to help medical professionals more clearly view and rapidly extract important diagnostic information about the body's structures or disease processes.
