Augmented Reality in Healthcare

Augmented reality (AR) is the superimposing computer-generated content over a live view. AR integrates digital information with the user’s environment in real time and is becoming more accessible and affordable for medical education and even in the operating theatre resulting in more cost-effective and precise surgeries. The benefits are endless, including virtual collaboration, training, etc. Bone fractures, etc can be viewed and inspected from any angle to determine and plan the most effective solution. The combined use with Microsoft’s HoloLens is transforming the Healthcare market. It’s a form of augmented reality called mixed reality. During surgery, it gives surgeons a 3D visual roadmap to successfully navigate procedures. This new technology has taken the world by storm and opening new frontiers in healthcare.
