Chicago—Novel software will enable physicians to transform data from standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) into 3-dimensional (3D) images with unprecedented variety and resolution, according to researchers from the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, in Los Angeles. The investigators presented their experiences with this new technology as part of clinical research protocols in pediatric urology as well as their suggestions for other potential medical and surgical applications at this year's Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons (ACS).
