Hands-on congenital heart diseases
Raising the level of client-physician dialogue
People with a congenital cardiac defect often do not know enough about their illness. Even though more knowledge leads to a feeling of control, certainty and confidence. In this project, patients gain improved insight of their illness through Augmented Reality and 3D printing. Employing digital technology we transform 2D images from CT and MRI scans into detailed 3D scale models that can be experienced spatially, both in a tactile and visual sense.
