Researchers from the University of Alberta, Canada, developed an imaging system that projects real-life CAT scans and MRIs onto bodies. Named ProjectDR, the new imaging system helps medical staff plan procedures before making an incision. Currently, the system is in development, with the Faculty of Science team working to improve the depth of the imaging. The team are additionally working on improving the system’s ability to automatically calibrate size and movement. Using infrared cameras and markers on a patient’s body, the system tracks a person’s movements to correctly project internal structures. The program is capable of projecting large systems such as…
