There are about 30,000 diseases known to human beings and three-quarters of them have no treatment. So, there is an increased need for more accurate diagnostic ways, understanding our own bodies becoming a necessity more than any time before. Modern technology and physical discoveries have opened new horizons for medicine, such as radiography and advanced diagnostic procedures such as CT.
This research by Dr. Hamza Aliwah (medical student at the University of Washington) aims to demonstrate the possibility of visualizing the human body from inside and displaying it on a 3D Screen, by creating a link between the physics applications, radiography, and medicine.
The importance of the research lies in being a facilitator for diagnosing diseases. Imagine that it is possible to perform a whole virtual surgery after viewing the human body from inside! Especially these days where virtual reality is so close to being launched.
THE RESEARCH REVOLVES AROUND 3 MAIN POINTS:
Eye: Visible light is a kind of electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye. Our perception of color is dependent on light wavelength perception (or combination of light wavelengths)
3D perceiving happens when there are 3 visible dimensions (horizontal, vertical and depth) three-dimensional that you look at with your eyes appears because of the presence of depth, which is the main factor that the research tried to apply in technological display tools to make them able to display images or videos in 3D. One example of making a 3D view is when 3D glasses have two images (same pictures but different angles) to the human eye. Each image is separately sent to one of the eyes tricking the brain of the presence of depth. Thus, the image appears in 3D
CT scan: CT scan is a painless diagnostic test that uses x-rays and computers to create cross- sectional images of bones and tissues inside your body. It is performed using a large square or round x-ray machine with a tunnel through the center. CT is used in serious medical conditions such as heart attacks and strokes. etc.
Physics: Here the research focused on the laws that fully support the idea in theory before starting the application, choosing the laws, and detailing them carefully was a difficult challenge.
But the biggest challenge was to create a scientific logical connection between technology and physics, and eye ability to see the image should always be considered. Therefore, physical laws have been carefully selected so that the idea is proven theoretically before starting application, all in accordance with the principles of three-dimensional vision.
The major surprise in this research is that the 3D view does not require any auxiliary glasses like other popular 3D viewing methods currently.
The idea was patented after it was presented to a panel of scientists at the “Humming Bird” conference. The research was theoretically proven and adopted by a financing company, and an experimental model was devised for it, which was presented in the German capital, Berlin, at a conference in late March.
