The advancements in biomedical imaging have led to increasing data sizes and dimensions. While planar images have been the standard in the past, three and higher-​dimensional datasets have become increasingly available and require sophisticated approaches of visualization and interrogation. With a view of teaching organ anatomy and function to students, the data quality and richness of data available from imaging tools, now allow for new approaches of visualization and communication in the classroom setting. Moreover, the Augmented Reality technology may become a helpful tool in clinical medicine, biological and biomedical imaging research in the near feature. To this end, EXCITE Zurich is committed to developing and exploring novel ways of image data visualization and analysis.
