A Unique Software Platform for Complex Image Analysis Using Virtual Reality
DIVA (Data Integration and Visualization in Augmented and Virtual Environments) is a software platform jointly developed by the Decision and Bayesian Computation lab of the Pasteur Institute and the Light-Based Observation and Control of Cellular Organisation lab of the Curie Institute.
DIVA is a software platform that permits that analysis of biomedical and microscopy images using virtual reality. It virtually places users inside rich 3D environments based on their experimentally acquired imaging data. Highly interactive, it serves both as an exploratory platform for data comprehension and diagnoses but also as an analysis vehicle for extracting relevant information in various unique data formats. This powerful tool is compatible with all tomographic image types, whether from an MRI, CT or confocal microscope. Subject of a collaboration between the Institut Pasteur and Institut Curie, it is one of the first software tools to combine user–data interaction, immersive visualization and data processing in the aim of improving our understanding of complex scientific images.
