HoloLens: surgery in Mixed Reality

Dear Sir or Madam,

Conventional CT and MRI images are two-dimensional – the organs on which surgery is actually performed are not. In addition, the surgeon can only ever focus on either the images or the patient. But how about 3D images that can be projected directly into the OR? This is exactly what is possible with the Microsoft HoloLens. Read more about Virtual Surgical Intelligence in our interview.

I wish you a fresh week,

Elena Blume

Modern imaging opens news doors to surgeries. Yet it also poses major problems for surgeons: They use two-dimensional images to navigate through a three-dimensional surgical environment, while they continuously have to switch their focus back and forth between the images and the patient. Now help is on the way in the form of interactive 3D projections and mixed reality (MR).
