Medical imaging company Medivis has launched AnatomyX, an augmented reality (AR) platform for anatomy education that shows students the inner workings of the human body.
AnatomyX is available on Microsoft’s HoloLens and the Magic Leap One. It’s aimed at universities and medical institutions in need of an enterprise-grade learning platform for the study of human anatomy, physiology and pathology.
West Coast University is among the medical institutions and universities already using AnatomyX. Initial research from pilot institutions has shown several positive results, including 15% higher student performance on standardised assessments.
Features of AnatomyX include expertly modeled male and female bodies from real patient CT/MRI imaging, with more than 5,000 unique structures that are continuously updated for ever-growing detail.
Users can access more than 100 voice commands for easy navigation. Hand gesture controls using the latest in computer vision technology are also available, along with an advanced speech recognition API for medical terminology. An optional six-degree-of-freedom control is integrated exclusively for Magic Leap for precise interactions.
All AnatomyX data, including quiz/test results, is securely stored in the Medivis cloud infrastructure, allowing for powerful instructor insight into student and class progress.
The platform also allows for real-time collaboration with up to 20 users simultaneously and advanced modes including dissection, isolation and mastery.
“AnatomyX has evolved from an app to a rich platform for the interactive study of human anatomy,” commented Jennifer Esposito, vice president of health at Magic Leap.
“AnatomyX pushes the boundaries of Magic Leap’s technology—incorporating unique interaction elements and user sensing capabilities to provide students and instructors an innovative platform to learn and teach. We’re thrilled to be a part of Medivis’ journey as they take anatomy education to new heights.”
Medivis launched its AR platform for surgical applications last month. SurgicalAR enables surgeons to overlay images directly onto the patient.
