MRI/CT Scans Goes 3D, Thanks to IIIT-D Students’ New Virtual Reality App

MRI/CT Scans Goes 3D, Thanks to IIIT-D Students’ New Virtual Reality App

Developed by Palash Bansal, a final year B Tech student, the software application—RealVol—uses virtual reality to project these images in 3D for enhanced viewing.

MRI scans and CT scans take a highly detailed image of the inside of a person’s body. These scans appear on computer screens and can even be printed on special photographic sheets for doctors to read and diagnose any internal issues, accordingly.

However, these scans are nothing but a 2D representation of the scanned part and do not offer a 3D perspective for better understanding by depth.

To help with this, a final year student of the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology has come up with a way to view these images in 3D with the help of Virtual Reality.

Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which a person can explore, and even interact with.

Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Palash said, “With the development of computer science and technology, we can now even reconstruct three-dimensional models of the scans through complex algorithms and colour them. But, these systems have many limitations.”

His final year project will now contribute to the ease of making a diagnosis and can also be used in other medical fields—from learning to research.

Bansal developed an interest in the field of Virtual Reality a few years ago and received a lot of praise after he released a basic version of an application which provided an imaging solution for dental scans, on YouTube.

“I started getting emails from a lot of people who wanted to use this, and said that it has tremendous potential, That is when I decided to develop this full time and get this deployed in India as good technology, especially medical technology, always takes a lot of time to come to India,” Bansal said to HT.

The application can be used both in mobile phones and in desktops, and the file can be stored or sent across multiple platforms—from email to messaging apps.

The technology will definitely broaden the scope of the field of diagnostics, and will lead to a faster and more efficient understanding of the human body.
