Rendered from a patient CT scan, this 3D visualization screenshot shows the anatomy of a 53 year-old female presenting evidence of abnormal pathology. Can you locate and identify the abnormal mass?
When you are ready to learn the answer, watch the video below.
The size, shape, and location of this mass suggests the presence of non-small cell lung cancer, the most common type of lung cancer. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, lung cancer affects 224,000 adults in the US every year, 85% of which are non-small cell lung cancer. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer death for men and women (Cancer.Net - Oncologist-approved information from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, 2016)
The Anatomy Challenge video demonstrates how BodyViz anatomy software provides instructors, students, clinicians, and surgeons valuable insights into complex anatomical relationships. BodyViz users easily create 3D CT and MRI visualization from patient data. As demonstrated in the video, the 3D visualizations allow users to explore patient scan data in-depth using features like tissue-type mode, annotations, and clipping planes. Using BodyViz, you can see and explore anatomical features and pathologies that would otherwise remain visibly hidden.
Schedule a 15-minute online demonstration to experience the power and value of BodyViz anatomy software.
