Digital ArtForms Debuts iMedic3D, a Radically Different Approach to Radiology, at RSNA ‘11, and Announces the Addition of Dr. Eliot Siegel and Dr. David Kim to Its Advisory Board Members
Date:11/25/2011

CHICAGO, Nov. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RSNA '11 -- Digital ArtForms announces iMedic3D, the first in a new generation of imaging tools, as well as the addition of Dr Eliot Siegel and Dr David H Kim to its Advisory Board.   

"iMedic3D brings immersive interaction to medical imaging. By replacing the 2D mouse with a pair of 3D mice, we empower radiologists and surgeons to better visualize and interact with their 3D datasets," said Paul Mlyniec, President of Digital ArtForms.

"I'm proud to welcome Drs. Siegel and Kim to our Advisory Board.  We are delighted that two such distinguished radiologists are so enthusiastic about iMedic3D, and we look forward to their considerable contributions to its development and acceptance. With their help, we believe we can change the face of Radiology. We are confident that the clinicians visiting with us at RSNA '11 will agree," said Mlyniec.

"The mouse and keyboard interface for imaging systems, including the PACS, has been essentially unchanged since the early 1990s," said Dr Siegel. "... Digital ArtForms' tracked interface ... seems to be a truly innovative and an out of the box concept for interaction with complex CT and MRI datasets.  It becomes intuitive after a few minutes of practice, and I believe that it has the potential to provide a more efficient and effective interface if workstation vendors can support its many degrees of freedom of motion."

"The tracked interface is a paradigm shift in interpretation that makes sense," said Dr. Kim.  "It supports cross-sectional evaluation and extends naturally to manipulating volumetric data. In my opinion, this is clearly the future of radiology."

About iMedic3D

iMedic3D is a DICOM visualization application that immerses clinicians in their 3D data. It's powered by Digital ArtForms Two-Handed Interface (THI), a powerful object and viewpoint manipulation technology that lets users almost instantly position themselves anywhere in their data, looking in any direction, and at any scale.  iMedic3D's decluttering tools give users easy access to features embedded in cluttered or solid datasets.  In a study funded and overseen by the US Army's Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) THI was shown to be 4-5 times as fast as a mouse in the hands of novices (47 minutes of training) and approaching 9 times the mouse in the hands of experienced users in the performance of fundamental 3D tasks. iMedic3D is available today without FDA clearance. Digital ArtForms will be showing iMedic3D in Booth #1508, Lakeside.

Dr. Siegel is Professor and Vice Chair at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, as well as Chief of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine for the Veterans Affairs Maryland Healthcare System, both in Baltimore, MD.

He has been named as Researcher of the Year, received multiple awards for innovation, including the Smithsonian award, and was selected as runner up Educator of the Year for Diagnostic Radiology. The readers and editorial board of Medical Imaging have selected Dr. Siegel as one of the top ten radiologists for the past two years.  He is chairman of the RSNA's Medical Imaging Resource Committee.
