The authors introduce a tool referred to as the Ultimate Intubation Head (UIH) to train medical practitioners' hand-eye coordination in performing endotracheal intubation with the help of augmented reality methods. In this paper we describe the integration of a deployable UIH and present methods for augmented reality registration of real and virtual(More)
A two phase, six month, double blind clinical study was conducted to compare the effect on supragingival calculus deposits of a dentifrice containing 1.30% soluble pyrophosphate (from 2.0% tetrasodium pyrophosphate) with and without the presence of 1.50% of a copolymer of methoxyethylene and maleic acid. In Phase I of the study, male and female adult(More)
Augmented reality is often used for medical training systems in which the user visualizes 3D information superimposed on the real world. In this context, we introduce a augmented reality tool to train the medical practitioner handeye coordination in performing critical procedures such as endotracheal intubation.
A real-time physiologically-based normal and pathological breathing model of lungs has been conceived and implemented. The algorithm developed for lung deformations under various breathing scenarios uses polygonal models of lungs. The method developed avoids the “ stiffness” problem observed in Mass-Spring models. Hardware acceleration of the exhalation and(More)
Visualizing information in three dimensions provides an increased understanding of the data presented. Furthermore, the ability to manipulate or interact with data visualized in three dimensions is superior. Within the medical community, augmented reality is being used for interactive, three-dimensional (3D) visualization. This type of visualization, which(More)

Augmented reality is often used for interactive, three-dimensional visualization within the medical community. To this end, we present the integration of an augmented reality system that will be used to train military medics in airway management. The system demonstrates how a head-mounted projective display can be integrated with a desktop PC to create an(More)
Restoring airway function is a vital task in many medical scenarios. Although various simulation tools have been available for learning such skills, recent research indicated that fidelity in simulating airway management deserves further improvements. In this study, we designed and implemented a new prototype for practicing relevant tasks including(More)
The Mobile Medical Lane Trainer (MMLT) is a multi-sensor rapidly deployed After-Action Review (AAR) system for Army medical lane training. Current AAR systems have two main drawbacks: 1) video does not provide a complete view of the medical and tactical situation, and 2) the video is not readily available for effective evaluation. The MMLT program is(More)
