Proof of concept of showing MRI scans in 3D in WebVR using A-Frame
This app is a very simple proof of concept showing sequential MRI scans of a friend's knee (thanks Tricky!) arranged in 3D space with low opacity to create an illusion of volume.
Use your mouse to
drag to rotate the image. Use the
scrollwheel to zoom in / out.

About MRI Image Formats
In theory it would be possible to make a "VR view" automatically from any DICOM compliant file. According to the web DICOM viewers, parsing images is tough because of variability between compression types on various MRI hardware, etc.
In this example I manually converted a series of 26 images from DICOM to JPEG images using MicroDicom and simple copying them into Paint 3D and saving as a series of JPEGs.
