Aside from the coronavirus topic, two fresh projects are connected to imaging, visualization, and analytics in healthcare and inspired me to write this blog.
First of them is the digital Encyclopedia of DNA Elements that's going to explain how the human genome works. This is the third stage of the project and ENCODE 3 researchers created a web-based tool — SCREEN — that allows users to visualize the data supporting the project’s interpretations. Read more about the project here.
The second example is more about imaging than visualizing. But who knows, maybe visualizing of data collected will be the next step in this project? I'm talking about optical coherence tomography endoscope — the world's smallest imaging device! And it's 3D printed. It has a diameter of 0.46 millimeters and, surely, will have large implications in cardio care. You can read more about this project here.
This is a great example of cooperation between medics and engineers. I'm sure, healthtech need to be added here. The technology can help this project to collect data, study it, analyze correlations between different data sets, interpret it correctly, and build great visualizations based on these researches.
I'm sure, there are many more visualizations I didn't manage to see yet. Which of them inspired you more? I will appreciate if you share your thoughts.
