zSpace Immersive Medical Learning Platform
zSpace renders patient-specific anatomy in an intuitive, interactive virtual reality format, leading directly to increased clinical knowledge, faster operations, and better care. This advanced medical visualization software offers physicians an unprecedented opportunity to view and interact with patient tissues and organs in a 3D format, as if they were real objects. From anatomical representation to procedural planning, zSpace brings a new dimension to medical learning and visualization.

The Problem with Conventional Devices
The human body is a complex system of tissues and organs that can be hard for doctors to conceptualize in their minds without the proper tools. Current medical visualization techniques have limitations in representing the complex 3D orientation present in human anatomy. 2D images produced by CT, MRI, and other devices don’t address relevant 3D relationships that define the tissue or organ of interest, as well as its neighboring anatomy. In complex cases, they must visually map two or more views of the same data to find appropriate correspondences of one view with another view to produce a match and determine if what they see is the tissue they want to evaluate.
zSpace is a real-time, interactive virtual reality system that renders 3D moves beyond the flat screen. It displaying real patient anatomy in open space, with instant response and seamless interaction capabilities. Armed with the latest optimal image strategy, anatomical information is tailored to be procedure-specific, easily accessible and unobstructed. The device is easy and intuitive to use, and provides visual context, with no extraneous information, significantly lowering cognitive workload. Specialized tools enable users to directly grasp and dissect key body parts. Advanced sharing technology allows doctors to create rich data, share it with others, and improve the overall utility across a network of users.
