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.
