The Augmented and Virtual Reality in Oncology Lab (DICOM VR)

The DICOM VR team has developed a cutting-edge platform for fast and efficient viewing and manipulation of standard 3D medical scans such as CT, MRI or ultrasound using a virtual reality interface.  Their goal is to create safer radiation therapy and surgical plans for patients undergoing cancer treatment.

This system enables:

  • standard volumetric imaging scans to be viewed and manipulated in a fully intuitive room-scale 3D environment
  • multiple users to interactively work in the same virtual environment from different locations
  • modules for medical education and patient engagement
