In recent years, physicians have shown how HoloLens can help with surgery, from clavicle repair to spinal surgery to cosmetic surgery. Now Britain's largest children's hospital is ready to use this technology.
The Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, which treats more than 270,000 children annually, uses the Microsoft HoloLens to help surgeons visualize anatomical 3D images and patient information such as ultrasound, CT scans, and angiograms during the Operation while keeping their hands free to focus on sensitive procedures.
"Picture of a patient's heart inside and out is absolutely necessary Must visualize this 3D view in my head to perform this operation, "said Rafael Guerrero, a cardiac surgeon at Alder Hey, in a blog post.
"You can sometimes see these images on a screen in the operating room, but it is not easily accessible, and I can not go in the middle of surgery to get more information about my patient, and in many cases the heart has already stopped so that we can operate. "
Guerro explained how he can imagine the HoloLens in the operating theaters of the future.
"In the future, Microsoft HoloLens and Mixed Reality will allow me to have the scans of a patient in front of me while I'm doing the surgery," Guerro said. "If I can use the technology to get that information, then Seeing these images helps me tremendously and improves the outcome for my patients. "
