Based on the client’s injury or anatomical area of interest, our radiologist and technicians use our workstation’s optimized protocols to create a movie (typically 10-15 seconds long) and set of static images. The editing and presentation possibilities are numerous, as the image gallery shows.
- * Zoom, angle, rotate, pan
- * Control the thickness of the cut-plane slab
- * Control the view orientation (left, right, anterior, posterior, etc.)
- * Isolating organs or any anatomical area
- * Subtracting unwanted anatomy such as bone or tissue
- * Thumbnail views
- * Various window formats (1×1, 2×2, etc.)
- * Side-by-side comparisons for injury progression
- * Annotation, measurement, scoring
- * Change color, background, brightness
- * Cubic Viewing
If you choose to customize your client’s movie, we can use any of these tools to deliver the images as you want to present them.
3D rendering is an outstanding method for display of medical imaging. However, the technique does have limits. (1) The quality of the 3D rendering is extremely dependent on the quality of the images you provide to medQuest to be rendered. While any CT or MRI can be rendered in 3D, poor images or images not optimally sized for 3D will yield less than perfect renderings. (2) 3D renderings cannot show abnormalities that are not present in the original images. However, the 3D display often makes abnormalities more apparent, striking and understandable, particularly to the lay person. (3) Very subtle and/or small abnormalities may not be visible when rendered in 3D.
