Spanish Clinic Gregorio Mara ñ ó n together with Exovite is developing an innovative project that allows the use of mixed reality in real surgery using Microsoft HoloLens glasses. The project was named HoloSurg and he to help surgeons find and to remove malignant tumors in muscles.
AT differences from traditional VR-platforms , where the real world is completely replaced by a picture, the product from Microsoft uses the concept of " holographic computing. " This means that a physically perceptible world around will overlap the picture, and ennobled by additional reality.
How it works
Before I lie down on operating table, the patient undergoes a full range of examinations: from medical examination before tomography and ray. All collected information is generated in detailed virtual medical record. Having worn a helmet, the surgeon gets full access to the patient's medical records and its current life indicators.
The HoloSurg system consists of set of virtual interactive panels, which are projected in The field of view of the surgeon and You can simultaneously see both real and virtual objects. Thanks to 2D and 3D images that can be viewed, magnified, and turn in real-time, physicians will be able to reduce physical more accurately determine the location of tumors in patients.
The system completely scans the room with all in objects and allows you to display holographic information in conjunction with other users, both locally and remotely. The Yes, doctors will be able to examine the patient collectively, while in different ends of the planet. Also, the doctor can place the image in the the most convenient place for him, in including right on patient.
A couple of years ago, such systems could only be fiction movies, and Now, such projects as HoloSurg are increasingly heels of reality. AT further, mixed reality will allow surgeons to turn to virtual information is not losing touch with the real world. In addition to convenience, such a system will reduce surgical risks and significantly speed up the process of operating. Well and While the surgeon examines the heart, the patient can, for example, air your virtual liver and count the holes.
