Measurements taken from projected 3D holographic models were able to match a gold standard in measuring accuracy, according to a study set to be presented at the ARRS 2018 Annual Meeting.
3D holographic models developed for education, training and research purposes must mimic the structure of actual models for accuracy. This study, to be presented by Jesus Uribe of the University of California at San Francisco's Helen Diller Medical Center, set out to identify the accuracy and feasibility of projected augmented-reality 3D holographic models.
The 3D models were developed using CT Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data. In total, five models were produced, and markers were used to measure the distance between points on the models.
Results examining the accuracy of the measurements taken on the 3D models showed no statistically significance difference when compared to gold standard measurements. Additionally, the 3D hologram model showed high levels of accuracy in nearly approaching PACS measurements.
