Ultrasound technologies have been widely used in gynecology and obstetrics. Modern ultrasound systems allow the reconstruction of a 3D model of the subject being scanned, but even though visual interfaces have reached very high standards, the problem of representing a 3D image on a 2D computer screen still exists. Moreover no physical interaction is possible with such a model. The FeTouch system, developed at Siena University in the last two years, partially solves such issues by using stereo… CONTINUE READING
