iGene® has developed iDASS™ software that employs images from medical imaging modalities, mostly CT scanner, to produce a 3D digital body for forensic autopsy.
iDASS is the first application in the forensic domain that enables pathologists to investigate the body without physically manipulating it. There are different tools available in this application to help pathologists perform a successful autopsy like Auto Metal Tracking (AMT) which helps users scan the 3D body and locate any metal particles inside. Other tools help examine internal bleeding (e.g. due to stab wound), and extract body organs like the heart, kidneys, eyeballs, lungs, etc., for detailed examination.
Theusers of this application are forensic pathologists, professionals and medical students particularly for investigating the body during the autopsy and education in anatomy laboratory. iDASS in action: http://youtu.be/VyyPyHq5414
The core strength of our software is its ability to provide a proper environment for forensic pathologists to conduct an autopsy. For example, the ease of selecting multiple views such as multi-planar reconstruction (MPR),
Use of Open Inventor
Open Inventor and its VolumeViz extension have been used for the past 6 years to power iDASS’ successive versions and iDASSmart (an extended version of iDASS).
