Seeing makes for better understanding. Imaging procedures such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MRI) deliver realistic, extraordinarily detailed pictures of the interior of a patient’s body. This opens up new possibilities for medical education and the planning of surgical procedures, and also facilitates communication with referring physicians and patients.
On the basis of physical fundamentals, Siemens has developed an innovative rendering algorithm that provides superbly detailed, photorealistic images. Driven forward by progress in the animated film industry, new rendering techniques bring forth results that are increasingly realistic to say nothing of breathtakingly beautiful.
