Of all the core technologies associated with imaging, one of the easiest to overlook—yet most critical for many applications—is the display. With machine vision, a display may be more of an afterthought used to verify an automated process. Still, it has to be ruggedized sufficiently for the environment in which it operates. In other applications, such as medicine and science, the capabilities of the display can literally mean the difference between life and death and impact research that will change lives for generations to come.
In this issue of Advanced Imaging, we take a focused look at display and visualization through a special supplement. This section covers some of the latest developments in visualization technology, 3D displays and ruggedized industrial display technologies for when off-the-shelf just won’t cut it.
Our display focus ties in nicely with the feature in the magazine from María Helguera, Ph.D., an associate professor at the CFC Center for Imaging Science, Rochester Institute of Technology. Helguera takes a look at some of the areas where imaging technology developed for applications such as machine vision can be applied to medicine.
Our component integration column continues the trend by looking at how a PA CS environment can be facilitated by outsourcing storage over the Internet to a third-party provider.
Of all the imaging applications out there, anyone approaching middle age or beyond or with family entering that lifestyle transition will certainly appreciate the benefits of advanced medical technology.
