Mixed and Virtual Reality in Surgery
The term, Virtual Reality is used for immersive experiences, which could be based on real-world content, purely synthetic content or a hybrid of both. Mixed Reality, i.e. the real and digital worlds integrated and enhanced with holograms, might be mandatory when interacting with the real world, i.e. during surgery. Ideally, Mixed Reality integrates your real and digital worlds seamlessly, enables intuitive and natural interactions and provides digital content is wherever needed.
We are working on preoperative surgical planning in visceral surgery (VR, MR), use of Mixed Reality systems in the operating room (MR assisted surgery, tele-consulting & mentoring) and training of surgical technicians via 360° videos and immersive 3D spaces.
