Augmented Reality is Already Changing How Doctors Conduct Surgeryby Chetu Inc World Class Software Solutions
In the coming years, Augmented Reality (AR) will
have a profound influence on certain areas of the healthcare industry,
AR takes a real-world image and superimposes a computer-generated images over it, guiding users through a real-world situation or landscape. AR technology can be deployed on mobile devices and portable projectors, though head-mounted displays (HMD) have proven to offer the most practical AR viewing experiences.
Though all applications of AR are compelling, we at Chetu,
a healthcare software development company, believe the innovations
Augmented Reality and Surgery
For decades, surgeons have had to split their focus between the patient and a nearby screen offering enhanced views of the patient’s anatomy. When split-second decisions can have fatal consequences, this is not ideal.
AR applications recreate real-world images of anatomical structures and project them in real time, using HMD technology. Some would describe this as “data visualization” —an information-rich, clear projection of patient vitals and anatomical structures that the surgeon requires.
AR surgery tools even include voice-command functionality, giving doctors the ability to opt out of the AR experience when it becomes distracting or unnecessary.
Improving Medical Training with AR
Augmented reality training applications have been shown to improve learning rates for surgical students by recreating the stress of mid-surgery mishaps and forcing them to react to any number of surprise circumstances.
Veteran surgeons can remotely observe and instruct students, offering them feedback and guidance in real time. One case study found that the lag time between surgical collaborators using AR technology is on average only 237 milliseconds.
Augmented Reality Software
The vitality of AR innovations in healthcare is dependent on the dependability of its motion processing, sensory intuition, and image recognition software programming.
Healthcare professionals interested in the broad functionality of augmented reality software should employ developers with a healthcare-specific programming history and a portfolio of AR implementation success stories.
