about orthostereo

This site is run by S L Ezekiel Tan, Orthopaedic Registrar, Department of Orthopaedics, Royal Newcastle Hospital, Newcastle, Australia and also have an interest in photographic and radiological imaging.  I decided to publish this website to disseminate information about stereoscopy, with particular regard to medical imaging so the learning curve for others is less steep.

Where are all the images? - I have decided not to include too many images on this site for two reasons - firstly, they will take too long to load; secondly, most of the images that I am working on are real patient data and will not be made publically available.  If you want to see examples, please contact me by email with your professional details.  If you are passing though Newcastle, Australia and want to have a look - let me know.

If you want help with setting up a stereoscopic system or recommendations, I'd be happy to try to help.  I'd also be interested to hear from any other people involved in development of stereoscopy in medicine.

Stereo equipment that I use:

Stereo Realist, TDC Stereo Colorist, beamsplitter attachment for 50mm SLR lens

Optical viewers:
Stereo Realist Red Button viewer, Nikon table stereoscope, handheld mini-Wheatstone viewer

Computer platforms:
