Houston Methodist Enters an Exclusive Agreement with Facts & Figures LLC to License its High-Definition, Multidimensional Imaging Technology

Houston Methodist has entered an exclusive agreement with Facts & Figures LLC, to license its high-definition, multidimensional imaging technology known as Plato's CAVE (Computer Augmented Virtual Environment). The agreement allows Facts and Figures to develop and commercialize Plato's CAVE technologies internationally. By combining CT, MRI and PET scans, surgeons use Plato's CAVE to better determine their surgical approach. They can view any aspect of a patient's body in multiple dimensions, in still images or video. Plato's CAVE creates 3D, 4D, 5D, or 6D images that allow surgeons to plan the safest, fast route to a tumor or blood vessel; to measure blood flow through the heart; to ensure there are no unexpected developments during the operation; and to even interpret sounds in the patient's body. The personalized visualization platform incorporates interface technologies, such as voice recognition, motion sensors, game controllers and multi-touch tables that look similar to a giant smartphone. By combining different scans, physicians can not only see through skin, muscle, bones and organs, but they can also take measurements that aid in the clinical data sets to help with diagnosis and surgical planning.
