UPDATE: Downloadable COVID-19 CT Scan

Thanks to the Coronavirus Disease Research Community - COVID-19 on Zenodo, we are able to provide downloadable COVID-19 CT scans for viewing in 3D. These scans are provided for download for free in .nii format and the viral pneumonia is clearly visible in the three dimensional view including the spatial position, 3D shape and visible volume of pneumonia nodules.
Singular Health is currently working on further modules and applications to assist in the triage and management of COVID-19 respiratory conditions.

What does Coronovirus (COVID-19) look like on a CT scan?

We're very pleased to have launched our entry-level 3D medical imaging software; 3D DICOM Viewer 1.0

Hit 'Play' on our short tutorial video to see the features of our lightweight DICOM viewer offering and see how fast it is to convert your 2D images into an accurate 3D model.

We've got a full pipeline of features in development and welcome your feedback.

COVID-19 Pneumonia (1)

We've taken the complex task of finding the right Hounsfield Units to show your required tissue density and simplified it into an intuitive slider. With our Windowing Values sliders, you can very quickly "strip" away different densities to expose particular areas of interest. 

As seen in the image, increasing the lower threshold of the Hounsfield Units progressively removes the softer tissue, allowing you to view the internal structures such as cartilege, muscle, organs and ultimately the high density skeletal system. 

Adjusting your windowing should be the first step once your scan has loaded prior to editing the Display Settings or using the 3D slicer tool.

COVID-19 Pneumonia Case 2

Our lightweight 3D viewer isn't intended as a full clinical DICOM viewer, rather as a fast and easy way to review your 2D analysis in the 3D space. Your time is precious and despite using your own computer's processing power to render the dicom (.dcm) or NiFti (.nii) files into a 3D volumetric render, we've optimise our conversion and rendering process to take less than 60 seconds.

In fact, most scans load in less than 30 seconds, giving you an quick-fire tool to create, review and capture (via screenshot or screen recording) a better understanding of complex cases.

Get up close and personal with your scans. We've built in a Zoom feature that is easily controlled by your Up & Down arrow keys to zoom in and out and get the best position for capturing images.
Soon, you'll be able to voyage inside the 3D model using our Immersive Zoom tool, positioning the 3D rendered model and navigating into internal spaces such as the trachea, lungs and more. 

Note: As at v1.0, the Zoom feature isn't immersive and zooming in too far or trying to immerse yourself in the 3D model will result in a black view in the program as the model occludes itself. The coming release of v1.1 will contain this new feature, stay tuned.

Utilising the Display setting sliders in the control panel, you can manipulate the Brightness, Contrast and Opacity values to see more in your 3D render. Simulate an 'X-Ray' view by reducing the opacity value and get a wire-frame type view that really highlights particular areas (as seen with the vascular system in the image). 

Due to the way in which Hounsfield Units (tissue density/windowing) uses grey-level mapping which impacts upon brightness and contrast, ensure that you try editing these two values after finding your desired Windowing range. This will help accentuate your scan without changing the accuracy of the medical scan data.

Positioning your rendered scan into a front, side and top view and using the 3D slicer tool provides viewing that is quite similar to the three standard orthagonal views (axial, coronal and sagittal). We've made snapping your scan to a particular plane easy, with an industry standard Navigation Cube (NavCube) in the top right. 

Additionally, if you'd like to view your scan from any angle, simply click on the screen and drag your mouse to rotate the scan in multiple degrees of freedom.
