|VRIxp is a medical diagnosis device using what is perhaps a novel form of 3D visualisation. It uses audio analysis of vibration deep inside the body to assemble precise structural detail.
Function is very straightforward. Two sensor array units (V-Array) are placed on a patient's back to collect the vibration response. Inside the body, the act of breathing, letting air flow down the pathways, creates micro turbulence in the larger airways. This in turn makes the airway walls vibrate, shaki9ng the smaller airways around them.
The combination of moving air and the vibration caused by turbulence is picked up by the two V shaped sensor arrays and triangulated. Each pixel of the image is thus built up by sound sweeps.
Proprietary algorithms combine the output signals, filter & process it to produce a sequence of images which reflect the vibration properties at each pixel position and at each interval.
The result is a 3D, real-time image of the lungs and surrounding tissue, which can be exported for further analysis on any DICOM device.
