True 3D is designed to address a problem inherent in medical imaging: Cross-sectional scans are fundamentally 2D representations of 3D objects. Radiologists have learned to translate 2D slices into 3D volumes in their minds, but this simply creates extra work for radiologists, according to Sergio Aguirre, chief technology officer of the firm. "We want them not to have to solve a 3D problem and then solve the clinical problem; we want them only to solve the clinical problem from the start," Aguirre said.
