This reality is closer than you think.

More Use Cases for AR

We’re strong believers in Augmented Reality, or AR for short. The software we offer at DICOM Director, like Intravision XR, is infused with this technology because we’ve observed how it improves patient outcomes. Intravision XR allows doctors to view anatomical structures in complete detail. This detail includes the spatial relationships between whole organs themselves and…

Virtual Reality Adversaries Are On The Prowl

Virtual Reality Hacking

Unwelcome Guests   The frequency, potency, and sophistication of cybersecurity threats continue to surge. Any business which employs digital technology, which is to say all businesses, is vulnerable to the attacks of an assortment of rogue digital adversaries, from individual “hackers” (a misnomer we will confront and clear up) to networks of dissident programmers bound…

Augmented Reality in Surgery

Some of the biggest medical advances of the last few decades have been in diagnostic imaging — Computerized Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and more. These advances have improved additional technology developments such as smaller cameras, faster processors, and real-time data streaming- all have transformed how physicians use imaging during procedures. One of the…
