The video illustrates how the v3® PV Toolset can be used to select, extract and critically align frames from a 2D image stream. In this case, we have chosen a video of radial nerve release surgery. The surgery was recorded with a standard handheld HD camcorder and uploaded to Vimeo. The PV Toolset allows a user to select frames that differ in time and parallax view of the area of interest. The extracted frames were then critically aligned at a common point using the PV Tools and outputted as a short movie, which was assembled to create this demonstration.
The purpose of this technique is to extract views with parallax differences and visualize them in a manner that makes the three-dimensional information and spatial relationships of the original subject obvious. Parallax visualized content can be viewed on any unaided 2D display. More information on the v3 PV Toolset can be found at inv3.com/qs3dx
Washington University of St. Louis School of Medsin Nerve Center produced the original video. It can be found at
