Visage Imaging, a subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd., has released Visage Ease VP for Apple Vision Pro. The software combines Apple’s spatial computing platform with Visage’s rendering engine to enhance diagnostic imaging and multimedia experiences. University of California (UC), San Diego, is the pioneering health system to trial this technology.

Visage Ease VP offers mobile access with high-resolution virtual screens, freedom from lighting constraints, and interaction with real-world imaging. It also provides navigation through eye, hand, and voice inputs for a unique user experience. 

“The visualization of 3D medical imaging in immersive space creates exciting opportunities to improve patient care,” says Paul Murphy, MD, PhD, associate clinical professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine and radiologist at UC San Diego Health. “Technology that allows for sophisticated eye motion and gesture controls for reviewing 2D and 3D medical imaging could potentially help in efficient tumor board reviews and create collaborative spaces in healthcare.”

Malte Westerhoff, PhD, Visage co-founder and global chief technology officer, also spoke out about the software, commenting: “Visage’s platform of enterprise imaging applications that support the Apple ecosystem are used by many of the world’s largest, most sophisticated healthcare organizations, and also integrated bidirectionally to the most widely used EHR.”

Visage Ease VP is the newest addition to the Visage Ease app lineup for Apple devices, alongside Visage Ease and Visage Ease Pro. Visage also offers the Visage 7 smart-client app for macOS, granting access to enterprise imaging. Visage Ease VP is exclusively for Visage customers using the Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform, version Visage 7.1.18h or higher, and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.
