Presenting Data and Information
Medical communications for meetings or on a website

Is there a way to use virtual reality or manipulate images so that a doctor visiting a booth can have a "hands on" experience with a case study or float around a mechanism of action to get a real "feel" for it. There are meetings that use people but it's not always suitable to do so because of privacy issues etc.

Would there be a way to make this information come alive? But not be alive.

I go back all the way to 3D movies at the movie theater and I guess I'm trying to recreate some of that but in a modern, utilitarian way.

Thank you so very much.

Thanks, Doctor. Pretty interesting.

Much of the movie appeared useful -- showing the "trus" structure of the shunt, for example.

However, the music did not add anything useful, and it adds to the bandwidth to download the movie. Better would be a voice over describing what we're looking at. For example, I knew what the shunt was because I know what that is, but somebody else might not know, and could even think they're looking at the structure of the blood vessel itself.

Also, the labels, while useful, were **sometimes** hard to read. They could be larger, and maybe stay up longer.
