Analyzing medical images in 3D

Fujifilm has established technology to analyze CT and MRI images in 3D. This makes it possible to distinguish arteries and veins inside organs and visualize tumors and excision regions with high-precision 3D images.

1.CT and MRI cross-sectional images are analyzed to render three-dimensional images

Fujifilm has established technology that analyzes CT and MRI cross-sectional images of the inside of the body to render the patient’s internal organs, blood vessels, tumors, bones, and other components in three-dimension. The technology can distinguish and render in 3D the arteries and veins that intricately entwine inside the organs.

Since launching X-ray film in 1936, Fujifilm has continued its quest for greater accuracy in medical images. 3D analysis technology for medicine has brought innovation that transcends dimension to the images themselves.


2.Doctors can do a simulation so that the excision is minimal

Tasks that were previously time-consuming for doctors can now be processed in just a few minutes; tumors to be removed and regions to be excised can be visualized with highly accurate 3D images. Doctors are able to do a simulation before the operation so that the excision is minimal.

Fujifilm’s image analysis technologies shine in this system, which extracts the information that the doctor needs from vast CT and MRI data to render a 3D image that is optimal for diagnosis.

3.Supporting doctors: Fujifilm’s 3D analysis technology for medicine

It was challenging with conventional cross-sectional images to ascertain the tumor position in relation to the organs and blood vessels and the region to be excised, etc. Now that it is possible to confirm these as three-dimensional structures, the surgery frontlines have changed greatly.

Surgeons are able to simulate their operation plan, so they can share information and approach with surgery staff on a higher level. Another benefit is that the patient and family can gain a deeper understanding of the operation.

Fujifilm technology is helping to reduce surgery risks and to improve medical treatment quality.
