Controller-free exploration of medical image data: Experiencing the Kinect

  title={Controller-free exploration of medical image data: Experiencing the Kinect},
  author={Luigi Gallo and Alessio Pierluigi Placitelli and Mario Ciampi},
  journal={2011 24th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS)},
In this paper, an open-source system for a controller-free, highly interactive exploration of medical images is presented. By using a Microsoft Xbox Kinect™ as the only input device, the system's user interface allows users to interact at a distance through hand and arm gestures. The paper also details the interaction techniques we have designed specifically for the deviceless exploration of medical imaging data. Since the user interface is touch-free and does not require complex calibration… CONTINUE READING
