At today’s meeting of the Advisory Board of the Massachusetts Tech Leaders Healthcare Cluster I learned about VisibleBody.com. Astounding visualization tool – like the old plastic Visible Man/Woman models of long ago. Pan, tilt, rotate, zoom. I can see this as a terrific education tool for e-patients.
And the potential future applications: I can imagine animations of disease processes, healing processes, drug effects… wow. 3D visualizations of my very own fractures, my mets, you name it.
I hope this technology does well. (I’m certain it’ll help docs as well as patients!)
