Measurements taken on projected augmented reality 3D holographic models were shown to be essentially as accurate as “gold standard” measurements and nearly approaching that of PACS measurements, according to a study to be presented at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting, set for April 22-27 in Washington, DC.
The study, to be presented by Jesus Uribe of the University of California at San Francisco’s Helen Diller Medical Center, assessed the accuracy and precision of 3D augmented reality holographic models derived from CT Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data. Five hologram models were produced markers used to measure distances between points on the models.
Tests performed to examine the accuracy of the measurements found no statistically significant difference between gold standard measurements and measurements on projected augmented reality hologram models. Furthermore, measurements on hologram models demonstrated a high degree of accuracy in comparison to gold standard measurements, nearly approaching that of PACS measurements.
The results demonstrate that current augmented reality technology is capable of producing reliable 3D holograms from CT DICOM data and could be utilized for educational, training, or research purposes.
With educational activities representing the entire spectrum of radiology, ARRS will host leading radiologists from around the world at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting, April 22–27, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC. For more information, visit: http://www.arrs.org/am18.
Founded in 1900, ARRS is the first and oldest radiology society in the United States, and is an international forum for progress in radiology. The Society’s mission is to improve health through a community committed to advancing knowledge and skills in radiology. ARRS achieves its mission through an annual scientific and educational meeting, publication of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) and InPractice magazine, topical symposia and webinars, and print and online educational materials. ARRS is located in Leesburg, VA.
