Developed by HopeLab with the assistance of young patients, Re-Mission speaks to the issues that they confront daily in their fight against cancer.
Re-Mission is a free downloadable (PC only) 3D "shooter" with 20 levels that takes the player on a journey through the body of young patients living with different kinds of cancer. Patients play as Roxxi, an intrepid nanobot and blast cancer cells and control side effects.

A team of former video game developers have taken their knowledge and skills to create revolutionary medical imaging software. Redmond, WA company FiatLux Imaging, released today a visualizing application set to improve access and speed in the radiology field.
FiatLux Visualize uses a mainstream video game technology, Microsoft's DirectX graphics platform, which allows it to run on all PCs. It lets doctors analyze the 3D MRI or CT Scan images on standard PCs or PDAs. This major change in the field will improve the speed at which results can be analyzed, allowing doctors to work at any place and time, rather than being confined in radiology labs. More...
