With BodyViz 3D MRI / CT software, a user with an Xbox 360 controller can rotate, pan, zoom or fly-thru a patient's virtual anatomy. They can create "clipping" or "slicing" planes and move the planes in and out to see the internal structure of the patient. They can also choose from a variety of colors to enhance organs and features of the data. A user can choose what tissue densities they wish to view such as harder tissues (bone, muscle) or softer tissue (fat, skin). Using actual patient data, virtual trocars can be placed in the 3D MRI, CT scan visualizaton to enhance surgical planning. In addition, surgical instrument "paths" can be created on the fly and a user can fly through these paths interactively.
