3-D visualization tool for electronic health records

January 16, 2008

Another announcement about IBM innovation, this time in a 3-D image of the body to be integrated into EMRs. It is called the Anatomic and Symbolic Mapper Engine. How it works:

“A doctor first clicks the computer mouse on a particular part of the image, which triggers a search of the patient’s eHR to retrieve the relevant information. The patient’s information corresponding to that part of the image is then displayed, including text entries, lab results, and medical images, such as magnetic resource imaging. The doctor can zoom in on the image to retrieve selective information or narrow the search parameters by time or other factors.”

Can’t wait to see a demo.

A fascinating concept. Why not make it available to PHRs as well?
