Paper Abstract

In this study, we applied a novel system “VISTouch” to visualize medical imaging information. We enhanced the system to enable multiple devices to be used in combination dynamically and spatially. When a mobile device (parent) is placed horizontally, it displays an image that can be viewed from above. When another mobile device (child) is placed on this display, relative positions between them are dynamically acquired. The child device can then displays images viewed from its contact position, direction, and angle in real time. By using this VISTouch system, we achieved the visualization of medical images from arbitrary cross sections and arbitrary viewpoints in real time. It was also possible to indirectly view different cross sections as well as a general overview. Moreover, we attempted to visualize information from various angles on the actual scale of the human body using the installation artwork “CUBISTA,” which was built using VISTouch Air technology. From these implementations, we confirmed the potential of VISTouch technology to visualize medical imaging information.
