UNC gets $2.6M grant to develop 3-D medical technology

The National Library of Medicine has awarded the department of computer science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill a three-year, $2.6 million contract to develop and test 3-D video technology.

Researchers are trying to develop a portable "telepresence technology" that would allow on-site medical personnel to consult with off-site health-care providers in order to increase the quality of medical diagnosis and treatment.

UNC computer science researchers are designing a prototype of the technology. They plan to test its effectiveness by using it during tracheostomies being performed at UNC Hospitals.
