  • 3D visual display -- interersting ...

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    The fiollowing item is being Xposted from Usenet. I haven't seen any
    follow-up data yet. I seem to recall having seen something like this
    some years ago at the medical imaging group of the Mayo Clinic.

    Regards -- hjw.

    I read the following artical sent to me by a friend.

    >August 1992 PHOTONICS SPECTRA has a picture and squib about a
    >volumetric display built by Lambda systems of Highland Park, IL:

    > "A new multiplaner display that presents nonholographic
    > color images in real-time fills the need for volumetric

    > Among the possible applications listed are medical imaging, air

    Where can I get more information on this display?
