Current imaging technologies are capable of acquiring volumetric data, but they are limited by the flat 2-dimensional representation of complex 3-dimensional data. This pictorial report illustrates the potential role of interactive virtual reality (VR) that enables physicians to visualize and interact with image data as if they were real physical objects. Increasing availability of tools that make the VR environment a possibility could potentially be valuable in the interventional radiology suite.
