Visualization of Real Time MR Guided Hyperthermia
I predict that improved methods of visualizing magnetic resonance guided (MRg) hyperthermia will be needed within four to eleven years. This will happen as a result of: increasing refresh rates for MR thermometry; improving understanding of thermal damage mechanisms; the limits of human perceptual abilities; and, the limits of current visualization methods. I establish a case for prioritizing the research of new interfaces. If new interactive visualizations are not developed intime, advancing MR and medical technologies will out-pace the ability of software systems to fully utilize those advances.
