3D Lab Banner

The Department of Diagnostic Imaging maintains the facilities, equipment, and staff for the clinical 3D Lab service and the Hospital Imaging Research and Education Support (HI-RES) program.

A state-of-the-art 1800 square foot dry lab inside the hospital is equipped with ten high-end Mac, Linux, and Windows imaging workstations, a teleconferencing/telemedicine system, non-clinical research data servers, and a computational research simulation and visualization bench. Workstations are setup with a variety of clinical, scientific, productivity, design, and programming tools such as TeraRecon, Osirix, Velocity, FreeSurfer, 3D Slicer, COMSOL Multiphysics, Matlab, Mathematica, SAS, SPSS, AutoCAD, ITK, VTK, Python, VisualStudio, Xcode, Office, and the Adobe Creative Suite. The bench space can be configured with equipment and cameras for tracking, 3D capture, augmented reality, and stereo display.

High performance computing, 3D printing, motion capture, and other 3D-related services are available through partnerships with other local facilities such as the Prince Engineering Lab and the Center for Computation and Visualization at Brown University, and the Gait Lab at the Veteran’s Administration (VA) Hospital.

Dedicated lab staff includes faculty researchers, clinical technologists, systems developers, and graduate students.
