3D MED-i

3D MED-i explores iimmersive arts-led 3D visualisation approaches using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) data.

This is a collaborative project between the St Vincent’s Hospital Rehabilitation Centre and the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab. This project aims to develop a series of immersive 3D visualisation digital artifacts, derived from MRI and CT vascular datasets, to assist patient rehabilitation. The work will focus on constructing a set of 3D experiential pieces using Virtual Reality (VR) headset technology. This joint research project will investigate whether arts-led 3D digital aesthetics can communicate disease process to patients. It is anticipated that this work will build linkage between experimental 3D computer arts practice and clinical health interventions.
