Augmented Reality for Surgical Applications

Combining 3D Imaging and Augmented Reality Novarad has combined the incredible 3D processing power of the Nova3D+ product with the interactive and augmented reality of Microsoft’s HoloLens goggles. This product renders patients’ imaging studies into 3D and presents them in an interactive manner. This gives radiologists, physicians, surgeons, and students the incredible ability to interact with the imaging data as well as see these images displayed in the anatomically correct location on the patient.

The Future Of Medical Imaging

Using the Augmented Reality technology built into the Microsoft HoloLens, OpenSight® registers medical imaging studies such as MRIs and CTs over the patient in real time, enabling the wearer to both see the patient and see through the patient with dynamic holograms of their internal anatomy.

From immediate impacts in the operating room to changing the way medicine is taught, the medical applications for OpenSight and Augmented Reality, this technological breakthrough will change the way that imaging is used throughout medicine.

Anatomically Correct

OpenSight projects rendered 3D images onto the patient with incredible accuracy. This allows users to pinpoint areas for training, identification or for further analysis.

Better Pre-Op Planning

With the amazing ability to see the patient’s anatomy surgeons can strategize and plan more easily before making any incisions.

Enhances Scholarly and Medical Research

OpenSight will enhance medical research by providing researchers with an unparalleled view of the subjects anatomy without the need for surgical incisions or other invasive procedures.

Teaching Tool

Medical students and professors can use OpenSight as a teaching tool that will help students visualize and understand patients’ internal anatomy. OpenSight can be used to either replace cadavers or overlay CT scan data on cadavers enabling residents to hone their craft with guidance from AR.

OpenSight allows the user to visualize the area of interest even before making an incision. Direct projection of these holographic reconstruction based on pre-operative CT/MRI can potentially increase the safety, and the efficacy of surgical procedures by reducing the amount of x-ray radiation utilized, accuracy of spine instrumentation placement, and visualization of key anatomic structures during brain surgery. When holographic models can be stereotactically synced, and if these are anatomically accurate, technology such as this can significantly improve the current state-of-the-art navigation system. -Jang W.
