The Radiological Society of North America is holding its annual meeting in Chicago this week and we stopped by for a quick visit to check out some interesting technology that’s being showcased. Being into nifty gadgetry, one company that caught our eye is EchoPixel. They are using virtual reality technology to help surgeons prepare for challenging operations. Their software runs on HP’s Zvr Interactive Virtual Reality Display that actually tracks the user’s face to create an impressive life-like volumetric visualization of radiographic data.
