Applying augmented reality during a forensic autopsy—Microsoft HoloLens as a DICOM viewer


Affolter, Raffael; Eggert, Sebastian; Sieberth, Till; Thali, Michael J; Ebert, Lars Christian (2019). Applying augmented reality during a forensic autopsy—Microsoft HoloLens as a DICOM viewer. Journal of Forensic Radiology and Imaging, 16:5-8.

Abstract

At the Zurich Institute of Forensic Medicine, post-mortem computed tomography (PMCT) has an important role. During an autopsy, access to the PMCT images can be important to localize findings. We present an approach to overcome the limitations of current systems for displaying medical image data during autopsy. The presented system uses augmented reality to display DICOM image stacks with basic functionality. In addition, we report the first test of the system during autopsy.
