SPL: The Surgical Planning Laboratory, Brigham and Women's Hospital

A project of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School's Department of Radiology, SPL is a multidisciplinary research institution "combining the fields of Computer Science and MRI Radiology towards a goal of real-time 3D imaging of patients during surgery." Professionals in the fields of radiology or 3D modelling, as well as curious general users, will find numerous items of interest at the site. In addition to a very large collection of full-text reports and research papers, the site has two primary features. The first, the Case of the Month, presents a radiology case study for each month of the year from July 1995 through October 2001. Each case study includes 3D models and radiology images. Some are also illustrated with MPEG animations. The other main section of the site is the AnatomyBrowser, a JAVA applet that combines 3D models, scans, and text on selected anatomical structures. The AnatomyBrowser section currently contains ten anatomical atlas cases, four clinical cases, and a selection of related scholarly cases. Additional features at the site include a collection of images and MPEG movies and a list of upcoming lectures, courses, and presentations by SPL staff. Faster connections and newer browsers are recommended for viewing this site.
