  10. STTR Phase I: Will stereoscopic 3D imaging improve brain aneurysm diagnosis?

    SBC: D3D Technologies Inc            Topic: DH

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to focus on the challenges neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons experience when visualizing complex brain aneurysms. Brain aneurysms, which occur in 2-3% of the population, are balloon-like dilations of a blood vessel supplying the brain which may rupture and result in severe headaches, paralysis, coma and death. Currently, radiologists viewing Magnetic Resonance Imag ...
