VR PluraView – The new passive 3D-stereo monitor benchmark for medical applications

Stereoscopic viewing - Virtual Reality with the VR PluraView monitor

Volumetric 3D images and models are of increasing importance in the medical sector. The high-resolution 3D PluraView stereo monitors from Schneider Digital are a perfect fit for the 3D-stereo display of medical data, especially from CT and MRI scanners. In contrast to other 2D and 3D desktop monitors, the PluraView have dual screens with passive beam-splitter technology to provide a realistic stereo 3D experience, comparable to a highly detailed holographic display. Combined with medical software and a suitable graphics card in a tower or laptop workstation, the PluraView stereo monitors provide a turnkey 3D workplace solution for the medical sector for viewing and analyzing volumetric medical data conveniently and efficiently, while presenting it at maximum resolution and flicker-free, even in daylight office conditions.

VR PluraView – Virtual interaction via head-tracking and gesture control included

VR PluraView – Virtual interaction via head-tracking and gesture control included

The VR PluraView is a ‘plug and play’ monitor system for virtual reality analysis, visualization, and processing of complex medical data in 3D-stereo. While the 3D object is positioned with one hand, the other hand can operate virtual tools, such as scalpels. Navigating to the right viewing angle and position becomes child’s play. Through seamless integration of 2D and 3D technology, medical professionals can display images in 2D as well as in 3D mode. Medical imaging data can therefore be analyzed quicker and more accurately, problems identified faster, and the right action can be taken accordingly. Users interact with the 3D model through head tracking and gesture recognition. Additional 2D or 3D controllers can also be deployed, depending on the user’s preference.

VR PluraView – work flicker-free in 3D and VR – even in daylight

The VR PluraView stereo system with the integrated optical PST Pico-Tracker offers an efficient method of viewing high-resolution 3D stereo images and enables Virtual Reality interaction. The VR PluraView provides extremely precise and pixel-accurate image analysis at full 4K (UHD) resolution on its dual screens and a color depth of up to 10 bits per RGB pixel. Users can therefore work confidently with any 3D-stereo capable medical application. With dual screens, each eye can focus on a separate stereo image at full resolution and brightness. The two images are viewed through the centrally mounted semi-transparent beam-splitter mirror. In contrast to active 3D single-screen monitors, the VR PluraView’s passive beam-splitter technology is completely flicker-free and therefore suitable for professional use throughout the working day without straining the eyes. The combination of maximum display brightness and outstanding resolution enables users to work in office daylight conditions – darkened rooms for working in 3D stereo are a thing of the past! The monitor provides effortless, relaxed stereo viewing with any medical 3D-stereo application.

Using 3D imaging and VR interaction at a glance:

  • Quick insight and better understanding of medical details

  • More precise and comprehensive analyses and therefore better diagnoses

  • Better trained and prepared staff, e.g. in surgery planning or medical training

  • A clear view when “touching” models with a spatial, three-dimensional impression

  • Supports 15 targets at the same time!

  • Support for easier analyses and diagnoses in medical 3D imaging

  • More precise visualization of patient-specific anatomy

  • Much easier and more accurate data preparation for medical 3D object printing

  • Four (4) different tracking protocols are supported: VRPN / Dtrack / trackd / native implementation of the PS-Tech SDK in C ++

  • Calibration free user interaction tracker

Designed for Medical Applications

VR PluraView Medical Applications:

  • VR PluraView in medical imaging and analysis (X-Ray, CT, MRI, Ultrasound)

    Medical professionals need to look at ever more complex and increasing volumes of imaging data to decide on diagnoses and supervise treatments. This is especially important for patients with persistent health problems who need to be CT/MRI scanned repeatedly and over longer periods of time: diagnosis and treatment is all about identifying minute differences between new and old images, for instance to detect and monitor tumors or minute changes in organ or blood vessel properties.

  • VR PluraView in surgery planning and preparation

    An integral part of all preparations for surgery involves comprehensive diagnoses, especially for more difficult procedures. Usually, this includes not only current blood counts, an ECG and a physical examination, but in general also X-rays, CT and MRI scans, which are invaluable for procedures planning. Options for surgery are mostly discussed and reviewed within a medical team. Specifically for this purpose, the 3D-stereo team viewing capability is very valuable to reach conclusions quicker and with more confidence.

  • VR PluraView in patient consultation and consenting

    As part of surgery preparation, the patient learns about the planned procedure and risks, which must be consented to. The patient-specific anatomy and problems can be displayed and explained much clearer to the patient in a 3D-stereo visualization, as anatomical details are highlighted far more effectively. This is a great way of alleviating the patient’s concerns and demonstrate how well prepared the planned surgery actually is.

  • VR PluraView for education, training and presentation

    The VR PluraView monitors are equally being used in teaching at leading medical faculties and natural sciences universities. In particular, the anatomy and organs of the human body can be displayed with much better clarity and very realistically to students. The VR PluraView is also used at live conference presentations, group discussions, team meetings, and for in-house training and education. Specialists can explain complex procedures at hospital team meetings, or visualize them in front of larger conference audiences.

  • VR PluraView for manufacturers of medical software applications or equipment

    Schneider Digital offers the VR PluraView monitor system to all medical software and hardware manufacturers as an option for upgrading, testing and certifying their products with a high-tech VR stereoscopic display. The common goal is to offer and deliver a complete, highly capable solution for stereoscopic work to medical customers. The VR PluraView can display all standard 3D data formats, such as DICOM, and is plug & play compatible with all current 3D-stereo capable medical software applications.


VR PluraView compatible medical software applications

There is a PluraView solution for medical 3D spatial data visualization, especially DICOM, no matter how demanding the requirements and applications of today’s high-tech medical industry are! The innovative 3D PluraView passive-stereo monitor family from Schneider Digital is designed for special use with a host of medical applications, e.g. in surgery planning, 3D computer tomography, in anatomical 3D imaging (X-ray, CT, MRI), colorized model building for 3D printing, or the analysis of ultrasound visual medical data. The monitors are suitable for any 3D stereo-capable software application in the medical sector, including 3D Systems VSP, Brainlab’s Stereotaxy, Pie Medical’s 3mensio products, Forsina, Vesalius3D, VERT, Healthineer’s syngo.foursight or syngo.Via to name but a few.
