Technology

4D Anatomy is based on a novel multilayer interactive photo reconstruction technique

The technology offers advanced visualization for image manipulation and navigation. It simulates anatomical dissections and surgical procedures in a way never seen before. Dissection images are captured by custom developed NeuroArcTM scanner. An image grid is established. Each frame of this image grid shows the specimen at the same focal point from slightly different angles.

Images are captured in spherical capture mode around the specimen from a slightly different angle to create and image grid while focal point is maintained.

Spherical scans are repeated throughout stages of dissections to create a multilayered image grid system. Images are reconstructed into interactive multidimensional simulation modules embedded into 4D Anatomy Online education platform (https://www.4danatomy.com/). 

Quiz Management features allow creating questions and setting up quizzes for students' assesement. Quiz results may be exported into Excel.

Content Management tools provide intutitive features to build course syllabussuch as thisEach image shows the same focal point from a different angle at various stages of dissections.

Sets of multilayered image grids are reconstructed into interactive multidimensional modules. As a result the specimens can be virtually rotated tilted and dissected using layering.

The image shows the actual effect of rotation as the pituitary stalk becomes visible as the specimens is rotated. Magnified images showing views of an actual simulated neurosurgical cadaver dissection in the right side of the skull base in upside down orientation.

The picture shows the effect of layering. Two images show consecutive stages of dissections but at the same spatial orientation. Notice as removal of the optic nerve the pituitary stalk becomes visible by layering. Magnified images showing views of an actual simulated neurosurgical cadaver dissection in the right side of the skull base in upside down orientation.
