Abstract

Conveying to a patient the exact physical nature of a disease or procedure can be difficult. By establishing an access website, and using existing 3D viewer software along with our expanding set of anatomical models, we can provide an interface to manipulate realistic, 3D models of common anatomical ailments, chosen from a database frequently updated at the request of the medical community. Physicians will be able to show patients exactly what their condition looks like internally, and explain in better detail how a procedure will be performed.
