    Abstract

    Contemporary requirements of medical explanatory resources have sparked the initiative of developing a unique pilot application which could use real-time 3D visualisation in order to inform General Practitioners (GPs) and allied health professionals as well as educate patients on musculoskeletal issues and particularly lower back pain. The proposed application offers a selection of 3D spinal anatomical and pathological models with embedded information.
