AR/VR in Healthcare
The medical field is often about trade-offs. Clinical decision-making is oft-times about risks vs benefits; rarely do you get the latter without the former. However, there are also occasional win-wins in medicine, where an advance is a clear improvement without any significant downsides. These days, technology is what drives such improvements. The undeniable potential of AR and VR to improve training procedures and even the operational side of medicine represents incredible opportunities. VR technology is able to produce virtual environments such as an operating room, surgical site, patient anatomy, or therapeutic simulation, in which to fully exploit what immersive technology can bring to this field.
