3d medical animation


When preparing for a surgery, typically many different doctors are involved in the process. This can be seen in a video from medical company One Model. By using 3D technology, the video can give patients an experience of what the procedure would be like before going through with it. 3D videos have also been shown to reduce anxiety when going through procedures that can often be uncomfortable for patients due to feeling sick or hearing noises they don’t understand, like surgical staples or others instruments being used during surgery.


The videos have also proven beneficial to surgeons who sometimes struggle with performing tasks correctly on patients due to issues such as fatigue and stress while operating on someone who is under anesthesia. These types of models can also provide training opportunities that otherwise might not be possible in a real operating situation and allow surgeons to practice on a model in their own time. These videos can be used as tools for the education of students or the learning process of new surgeons which can help prevent mistakes or errors.


The three-dimensional images are created using software, like Blender and Maya, with a camera tracking device, like an optical tracker and camera system for post production editing of the video. The development of 3D medical animation was pioneered by Dr. Mark Kogan and was originally identified by the National Institutes of Health. The first 3D medical animation system was developed in the early 1990s by the Organ Engineering Corporation (OEC) under the name ImageCAD Video System. In 1997, Dr. Mark Kogan and Dr. Frank Elson, also at OEC, developed another system called Macmillan Advanced Visualization Technology (MAVT), which is considered to have paved the way for modern 3D medical animation. In 2008, a new system called 3D Systems’ Medical Animation System was released to wider use around the world. Read More…
