Suddenly you're immersed in a 3D, full-color VR experience from the floor up to the three surrounding walls. The Cave was created by a partnership between WSU's National Institute for Aviation Research, Dassault Systèmes and Mechdyne Corp.

3D VR Colonoscopy allows better colorectal cancer prevention
At UCSF's 3D Imaging Lab, radiologist Judy Yee, MD, pulls up an image that looks more like a birthday party balloon animal than a patient's colon: a vibrant, color-segmented tube, torqued and twisted in on itself. Created from thin slices of a CT scan, the image appears in 3D on the flat screen. It can even morph into video "fly-through" views, enhancing polyps, lesions, and other precancerous anomalies.
