Title: Quantitative, Interactive Measurement of Tissue Engineering Scaffold Structure in an Immersive Visualization Environment
Published: October 02, 2006
Abstract: We describe a software system that enables the measurement and analysis of tissue engineering scaffold materials from three dimensional images. Essential to this work is the use of an immersive visualization (virtual reality) system that gives the researcher the ability to interact directly with data representations in ways that are not possible with desktop systems. Structures can be inspected and measurements can be made and analyzed during the immersive session. Using these measurements, researchers can assess the fidelity of actual scaffolds to the design model and evaluate scaffold manufacturing processes.
