“Virtual Anatomy” by the Ars Electronica Futurelab in cooperation with Siemens Healthineers and the JKU has been awarded at the E&T Innovation Awards.
The “Virtual Anatomy” software implemented by the Ars Electronica Futurelab in cooperation with Siemens Healthineers and the Johannes Kepler University has been awarded “Best Emerging Technology of the Year” at the prestigious E&T Innovation Awards – and snatched a silver medal as well. Congratulations to the teams!
The renowned E&T Innovation Awards annually honor the best innovations in different fields of technology. Besides being chosen as “Best Emerging Technology of the Year”, “Virtual Anatomy” also made second place in the category “Most Innovative Solution in Digital Health and Social Care”. Among the finalists there was yet another project by the Ars Electronica Futurelab, the immersive VR project “Deepandemia” that visualizes Covid-19 infection chains.
With “Virtual Anatomy” you experience MR and CT data from real patients in a completely new way: as photorealistic data in 8K stereoscopic 3D – allowing you to rotate the images freely and zoom down to smallest structures. The software that is available worldwide can be presented in virtual experience rooms like the Ars Electronica Center’s Deep Space 8K: with as much as 33 million pixels and up to 16-by-9-meter wall and floor projection.
“We at the Ars Electronica Futurelab are delighted that our collaboration is not only revolutionizing medical teaching starting in Austria, but has now also been recognized internationally with the E&T Innovation Award. As a laboratory of future systems, we’re working with numerous national and international partners on the technology of the future – and we see many other areas of application for ‘Virtual Anatomy’ in research and teaching”, says Roland Haring, Technical Director of the Ars Electronica Futurelab.
