“While imaging has radically evolved, how images are displayed is basically the same as it was in 1950”. This was what Sarah Murthi, Associate Professor of Surgery at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center and Amitabh Varshney, Dean of College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences at the University of Maryland wrote for Harvard Business Reviewlast year.
In the article, the duo detailed how their research team has moved
With AR, all these could be eliminated as critical clinical data are now being superimposed directly on the surgeon’s view of the patient; reducing medical errors and saving patients’ lives in the long run. This is especially true of procedures that are performed outside an operating room, in incidences when medical professional receives minimal support or those who are still undergoing training.
From symptoms descriptions, nursing care to body visualization
Fast forward a year later, AR is no longer novel to medicine and healthcare. In fact, it is fast
EyeDecide is an application
ProjectDR, an AR system developed by The University of Alberta’s computing science graduates Ian Watts and Michael Fiest, allows medical images obtained from CT (computed tomography) or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans to be directly displayed on the patient’s body. These images move along with the patients, giving physicians a full view of individuals’ internal anatomy for surgical planning, education, or physiotherapy.
Benefits of AR
In general, AR is giving both physicians and patients the room to learn more about a particular medical procedure. For the former, AR allows them to better plan and reduce risks that would possibly arise. For the latter, AR permits the making of better
