IIT students make VR app for MRI scan

As technology has increased, so has knowledge of the human body and its physiology.

Some of the most recent technological advancements that help people know how the human body works are MRI (Magnetic Resource Imaging) scans and CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) scans, which are also known as CT scans.

These scans present highly-detailed imagery of the body on computer screens. These images can even be printed out on special photographic sheets.

However, although these technologies allow doctors to better read and diagnose internal bodily issues, they are only a 2D representation of the scanned body parts.


They do not offer a true 3D perspective of the inside of the body.

Palash Bansal, a B Tech student at his final year in the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, has created a way to help with this shortcoming.

Bansal has developed RealVol, a software application that uses Virtual Reality (VR) to help people better understand the workings of the body.

This is done through the use of RealVol’s 3D imagery.

People can explore and even interact with the three-dimensional environment of RealVol.

Bansal’s final year project can make it much easier for doctors to make diagnoses. It can also be used to progress other medical fields, such as research and learning.

Bansal decided to develop RealVol full time when people began to email him and tell him what tremendous potential his project has.

Good medical technology can take a long time to come to India, which is why he was so adamant about developing and releasing RealVol at home.

The RealVol application can work on both mobile phones and desktops.

The file can be stored on multiple platforms. It can also be sent across multiple platforms.

RealVol is the next step forward in broadening the scope of the diagnostics field, and it will allow people to understand the human body even better than before.
