My3DLung was developed with patient education in mind. Using an office computer, a thoracic surgeon can help a patient visualize the pulmonary anatomy while discussing surgical resection. A "tumor" of any size can be placed in a chosen lobe of the lung to animate a patient's anatomy. After selecting the lobe and the size of the tumor, simply drag and drop the "tumor" in the appropriate location. The anatomy can be displayed at all angles using the mouse. The postsurgical anatomy can then be displayed by clicking on "operate." The tool was initially developed by Dr Kashif Irshad for thoracic surgery patients at William Osler Health System in Ontario, Canada.
