In this paper, we introduce a low cost, not cumbersome, 3D user interface for exploring medical data. 3D imaging data can be manipulated in a semi-immersive virtual environment by means of an off-the-shelf wireless data glove equipped with additional infrared light emitting diodes (LED). The LEDs are tracked by a Wii Remote, which is able to provide accurate positional information with no need for further six degrees of freedom position trackers. We also describe the interaction techniques we have designed specifically for a medical imaging scenario and provide some implementation details of the integration of the interface in an open-source image processing software for medical research.
