In a recent episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Dr. Cristina Yang comes across Israeli cutting-edge technology while visiting a Swiss hospital – the hyper-realistic, dynamic 3D holographic image of a beating heart, “floating in the air.”
The image is enhanced with digital data from X-ray, MRI or ultrasound imaging and can be manipulated and even sliced open virtually.
RealView Imaging, based in Yokneam, is making it possible for surgeons to use three-dimensional holography in planning the steps of delicate, complex procedures.
