The best for learning in vascular surgery: explore and discover by yourself.

New software to train surgeons. VASCULAR TRAINING 3D medical imaging software is designed to facilitate and improve the training of future professionals.

It is a fact: the new technologies have generated a change in the way we learn. The possibilities offered by the technique are more than interesting. Above all, in fields such as vascular surgery, where the clarity and precision of what is studied must be optimal to favor the understanding of students, the future guarantors of our health. The more practical the teaching, the more effective.

In eMedica we have developed 3D medical image training software precisely for this purpose: to facilitate and improve training in universities and training centers for future vascular surgery professionals. VASCULAR TRAINING allows 3D analysis and evaluation of different vascular structures, especially the aortic artery.

Because people learn:

  • 20% of what we hear
  • 20% of what we see
  • 40% of what we see and hear
  • 80% of what we live or discover for ourselves

VASCULAR TRAINING is software to train future surgeons and allows students to see and discover for themselves.

The tool, with a simple and clean interface, is very intuitive and it is available through our website. It has four functionalities: Preliminary Analysis, Segmentation and Centerline, 3D Analysis and Measurement-Export.

In this post, we will focus on the first one, the Preliminary Analysis, which allows a previous visualization of the images (previous to the 3D analysis) with a set of basic tools of interaction in 2D, as well as advanced views (MPR and OPR) for the processing of the study.

Some of the interactive tools of previous analysis of the radiological study are:




Change the window / level of an image quickly and easily. Simply by clicking on the image and moving the mouse horizontally or vertically


Enlarge or decrease the image representation on the screen.

Full screen

See full screen one of the 3 views: axial, sagittal, coronal.


It displays information about the pixel on the screen: signal strength at the selected point (identified by a blue square), pixel number and the relative spatial position of the patient at that point.


Scroll the image on the screen and frame the area to be analyzed. Indispensable when the image on the screen has been zoomed too far and a specific area needs to be panned.


Perform a pixel interpolation and achieve smoothing in the plot or display. It acquires importance when the quality of the image is not good. The use of this tool is common in MPR views.


Rotate the images 90 degrees to the right or left.


Make straight measurements on the image. The unit used is millimeter.


Calculate angles on the image. Values are shown in sexagesimal degrees


Select regions of interest on the image and be able to evaluate a specific area of the same through the values maximum, minimum, medium and deviation of signal strength. Different types of ROI: point, square, circle and ellipse.


Allows you to modify the points of a measurement, angle or ROI.


Undo changes made to the image.

Show/Hide DICOM annotation

Show or hide the DICOM information displayed.


It also has a set of advanced integrated views, such as Multiplanar Reconstructions (MPR).
