A PhD candidate in computer science has developed an augmented reality headset to help brain surgeons train for high-risk operations.
Doctors can now practice in VR medical emergencies, to improve care for patients with diabetes in the real world.
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.
Scientists have developed an ultra-light glove that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement.
Students create 3d printed healthcare simulators for medical training.
3D printed device should help to train doctors and nurses in developing countries and low-resource areas to prevent and treat cervical cancer.
3D printing is one of the emerging technologies in medicine. In advance of the ‘3rd Conference on 3D Printing in Medicine’ (May 4th and 5th in Mainz), MedicalView spoke with Andreas Giannopoulos, MD and PhD, a Deputy Attending Physician in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Zurich about his presentation “Cardiovascular 3D Printing: Clinical Applications, Educational Opportunities, Future Perspectives“.
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.
Less expensive and more realistic 3D models of blood vessels may offer alternative to the commercial standard.
