A scientist thinks the future of health care looks like the blinking check engine light on the dashboard of your car.
Augmented reality & virtual reality
Extended reality applications like virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality transform the practice of medicine. We report on their widespread use – from the use in the operating room to clinical medicine, drug development, medical training and education, to treatment in pain management, psychology and psychiatry.
A new study has shown that traditional ways of learning anatomy remain superior to those that rely on digital media.
Watching immersive 3D videos of icy Arctic scenes helps to relieve burning pain and could hold hope for treating chronic pain.
Ophthalmologists developed a simulation that helps patients, families and health professionals understand what progressive vision loss feels like.
A new study enhances our understanding of how the brain learns in virtual reality.
Combining learning in virtual reality and brain scans, researchers describes how a temporal map of memories is created in the entorhinal cortex.
Machine learning-guided virtual reality simulators can help neurosurgeons develop the skills they need before they step in the operating room.
Researchers have developed a technology to help clinicians "see" and map patient pain in real-time, through special augmented reality glasses.
Researchers at the University of East Anglia are pioneering virtual reality (VR) rehabilitation for stroke survivors, using low cost videogame technology.
Researchers are pairing a nanoscale imaging technique with virtual reality technology to create a method that allows researchers to “step inside” their biological data.
