Abstract:

THIS RESEARCH WILL DEFINE THE BEST POSSIBLE SYSTEM FOR ALLOWING MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS, RESEARCHERS, TEACHERS, AND STUDENTS EASY AND RAPID ACCESS TO STEREOSCOPIC VISUAL INFORMATION AND ACCOMPANYING TEXT. VIDEODISC TECHNOLOGY HASLONG BEEN RECOGNIZED AS THE MEDIUM OF CHOICE FOR RAPID RANDOM ACCESS TO HIGH-QUALITY VISUAL DATA. THIS RESEARCH WILL FOCUS ON VIDEODISC DESIGN TO PERFECT THE CREATION OF STEREOSCOPIC IMAGES. CURRENT TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH-QUALITY IMAGING WITH THE VIDEO FORMAT IS EXPENSIVE WITH REGARD TO THE COST OF PRODUCTION AND PLAYBACK EQUIPMENT. IF OUR RESEARCH PROVES SUCCESSFUL, IT WOULD PROVIDE READY ACCESS TOSTEREOSCOPIC IMAGES BY STUDENTS, AS WELL AS PRACTITIONERS AND RESEARCHERS. READY ACCESS BY CLINICIANS WILL IMPROVE THE CERTAINTY OF DIAGNOSIS AND IMPROVED ORIENTATION FOR SURGERY. RESEARCHERS WILL BENEFIT BY GREATER INSIGHT INTO PRECISE ORIENTATIONS IN STEREOCHEMISTRY. COMMERCIALLY, STEREOSCOPIC VIDEO OF MODEST COST WOULD HAVE GREAT APPEAL FOR ENTERTAINMENT, TRAINING, AND EDUCATION.
