Augmented Reality for Surgical Applications
Using the Augmented Reality technology built into the Microsoft HoloLens, OpenSight® registers medical imaging studies such as MRIs and CTs over the patient in real time, enabling the wearer to both see the patient and see through the patient with dynamic holograms of their internal anatomy.
From immediate impacts in the operating room to changing the way medicine is taught, the medical applications for OpenSight and Augmented Reality, this technological breakthrough will change the way that imaging is used throughout medicine.
OpenSight projects rendered 3D images onto the patient with incredible accuracy. This allows users to pinpoint areas for training, identification or for further analysis.
Better Pre-Op Planning
With the amazing ability to see the patient’s anatomy surgeons can strategize and plan more easily before making any incisions.
Enhances Scholarly and Medical Research
OpenSight will enhance medical research by providing researchers with an unparalleled view of the subjects anatomy without the need for surgical incisions or other invasive procedures.
Medical students and professors can use OpenSight as a teaching tool that will help students visualize and understand patients’ internal anatomy. OpenSight can be used to either replace cadavers or overlay CT scan data on cadavers enabling residents to hone their craft with guidance from AR.
