Medivis Unveils Next-Generation Anatomy Education Platform
NEW YORK, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medivis, a medical imaging and visualization company, today announced the launch of "AnatomyX" — its augmented reality (AR) platform for anatomy education. Currently enabled on Microsoft's HoloLens AR technology and Magic Leap's spatial computing device, Magic Leap One, AnatomyX offers any member of a large university or medical institution — students, instructors and administrators — an enterprise-grade learning platform for the study of human anatomy, physiology and pathology.
Benefits and features of AnatomyX include:
- Exceptional Life-Like Detail: Provides access to expertly modeled male and female bodies from real patient CT/MRI imaging, with more than 5,000 unique structures that are continuously updated for ever-growing detail. Each model includes advanced textures, normal maps and lighting for a superior photorealistic experience.
- State-of-the-Art Interactive Design: Users can access more than 100 voice commands for easy navigation by system and/or region. Hand gesture controls using the latest in computer vision technology are also available along with advanced speech recognition API for medical terminology. Exclusively with Magic Leap, an optional six-degree-of-freedom control is integrated for precise interactions.
- Powerful Dashboards: Secure accounts can be created on the platform for every student, professor and administrator. All data, including quiz/test results, is securely stored in the Medivis cloud infrastructure. The platform's advanced analytics then allow for powerful instructor insight into student and class progress.
- Multi-User Collaboration: The platform allows for real-time collaboration with up to 20 users simultaneously and advanced modes including dissection, isolation, and mastery. The platform provides limitless self-exploration and/or expertly guided instruction.
"AnatomyX has evolved from an app to a rich platform for the interactive study of human anatomy," said Jennifer Esposito, Vice President, Health at Magic Leap. "AnatomyX pushes the boundaries of Magic Leap's technology — incorporating unique interaction elements and user sensing capabilities to provide students and instructors an innovative platform to learn and teach. We're thrilled to be a part of Medivis' journey as they take anatomy education to new heights."
