The t3D software system converts 2D images into a stereoscopic 3-D image. Surgeons and radiologists can cut the virtual structure at any angle across the body, creating an infinite number of cross sections, and rotate the image so it’s positioned exactly as it will be during surgery. The t3D has only been used so far in preliminary studies at UCSF, Stanford, and Cleveland Clinic, but the company hopes to expand fast now that the device has FDA approval.
