ImageVis3D started as a desktop program developed by SCI Institute, that was then converted into an app for the iOS platform. ImageVis3D allows users to visualize and interactively explore terabyte-sized data sets. On the mobile version, these data sets are remotely accessed.

During the presentation Mr. Hughes manipulated an image of a hand. With ImageVis3D, he was able to strip the skin layer to examine the hand and wrist bones. In a medical setting, health professionals can use ImageVis3D to manipulate and explore patient’s organs and other anatomical structures.

Give it a try!

On April 4 at Appy Hour, Rich Interdonato, PhD,  from the Department of Health Promotion and Education, College of Health, presented an anatomy cadaver lab app.

The app is called AnatomyLab and is available on Android, iOS, and Nook.

Dr. Interdonato worked with a team to produce AnatomyLab for the Android version. AnatomyLab was one of the first anatomy-related apps on the market.

Using high-resolution pictures from a real cadaver, AnatomyLab allows users to navigate through multiple layers of the dissection process by zooming in and out. The app also allows users to highlight different anatomical structures, read about the structure, rotate  and view structures at different layers, and add personal notes. AnatomyLab is an excellent study companion!

Give it a try!

Be Secure Wirelessly on Campus

UConnect – best choice

UConnect is your top wireless network choice when on campus. It connects you to the University Network for access to licensed resources such as journals and databses via secure authentication with highest bandwidth. Log in with your uNID.

 

Traveling nationally or internationally?

Eduroam “allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain  Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions. Once a device is configured, it can connect to any participating eduroam network using the user name and password assigned by the user’s home institution.”

Note: Eduroam on campus grants secure wireless internet access but does not connect to the University Network. Not all University licensed resources will prompt for uNID login.  Bandwidth not as high as UConnect.
Wireless best choice for University of Utah affiliates is UConnect.

UGuest

UGuest wireless access provides basic internet access. UGuest  is not secure and has limited bandwidth. Wireless best choice for University of Utah affiliates is UConnect.

Appy Hour Recap- March

The app is called Prevent Group B Strep and is available on Android and iOS.

Dr. Byington worked with a team of professionals to move the 2010 Guidelines for the Prevention of Perinatal GBS Disease into a more user-friendly interface. This streamlines interpretation of the guidelines at the point of care.

The app takes the user (pediatric and obstetric care providers) through a series of questions concerning the patient. Depending upon the answers, Prevent Group B Strep provides a specific patient management plan or appropriate antibiotic regimen in adherence to the 2010 Guidelines.

By converting the guidelines into a scenario driven app, pediatric and obstetric providers can better implement evidence-based guidelines to prevent GBS disease.

Give it a try!
