Last year we reported on a fantastic touch-free system from University of Zurich’s Virtopsy project that uses a Microsoft Kinect 3D camera to navigate the Osirix radiological image viewer. The idea is to give surgeons the ability to review images while working on a patient, without having to have another clinician operate the browser or having to compromise sterility. The original prototype of the system detected hand gestures for certain functions and relied on voice commands for greater control. After eight months of additional development, the system no longer relies on voice recognition because it is now able to perform finger gesture detection, allowing for elaborate image browsing in a noisy environment and even with a German accent. The team plans on releasing an easily installable beta plugin for Osirix later this year that will allow you to do the same.
