The team of the Dynamic HIPS are working on a hip replacement simulator that will help future surgeons to practice the intervention.
Artificial intelligence is developing at an enormous speed and intelligent instruments will profoundly change surgery and medical interventions.
One of the crucial future technologies in surgery is Augmented Reality. Most experts agree that AR will increase safety and efficiency, improve surgical training and decrease costs.
Newer concepts like edge computing are regularly discussed alongside the cloud within the healthcare sector, often as if they are each exclusive approaches to infrastructure. However, using one does not eradicate the ability to utilise the other.
Scientists have made a decisive contribution to improving complex surgical training by developing a very realistic prostate phantom.
Machine learning-guided virtual reality simulators can help neurosurgeons develop the skills they need before they step in the operating room.
With the integration of HaptX Gloves, FundamentalVR demonstrates the ability to integrate its Surgical Haptic Intelligence Engine with third-party devices.
At ECR 2019, researchers talked about the practical applications of mixed realities in medical education and training as well as preprocedural planning and visualization during a surgery.
“HandsOn.surgery", the prototype of a virtual surgery trainer helps surgeons prepare for individual patient cases prior to surgery, and enables them to practice the surgery.
Orthopaedic surgeons can now get their hands on the bones of patients before they reach the operating table – with the help of 3D printing.
Smart surgical glasses Caduceus use revolutionary technology that combines mixed reality with surgical navigation that allow surgeons to visualize a 3D model of a patient’s body during surgery in real time.
By combining high-tech 3D printing technology with kickball and pieces of chicken breast, surgeons have devised an innovative way to “rehearse” complex minimally invasive fetal surgeries.
