Hologram Imaging Technology (HIT)

In advancing medical education, IVIR Inc. has been contracted by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory’s Simulation and Training Technology Center (ARL STTC) to investigate the use of holographic and 3-D imaging for medical simulation and training.

The effort investigated current holographic and 3-D technologies and their potential uses for medical modeling and simulation. Holographic and 3-D displays provide medical professionals with enhanced visualizations of human anatomy and physiology usable for education, training, and surgical practice. High fidelity anatomy models of the eye, brain, heart, and upper airway were developed for 3-D representation. These models are displayed holographically using the DARPA developed Urban Photonic Sandtable Display as well as on commercially available 3-D televisions.

Additionally, this research developed a new 3-D after action review capability using a position tracking Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system. It is being evaluated for a number of purposes including review capability for combat medics participating in medical training tactical field exercises. The system will track personnel using the LiDAR system and will then have the capability to replay the exercise in 3-D allowing for additional detail during exercise review. For this project, IVIR Inc.has partnered with the University of Minnesota Medical School, Zebra Imaging, and Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN).
