Augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies offer ways of creating and extending remote realism in healthcare through computer-generated or computer-aided experiences with real-world or virtual world benefits.
Goals and Objectives
Elevate experiences for healthcare stakeholders.
Create and expand augmented and virtual world dimensions that can be layered onto or positioned parallel to the real-world dynamics of care and its pathways.
Micro-electromechanical systems, sensors, goggles, and cameras
High-speed broadband connection — fixed or wireless (i.e., 5G)
Computer-generated real-world (layered) and virtual-world (digital 3D) environments (e.g., metaverse)
Use Case Summary
Immersive visualization is being increasingly utilized to pursue and realize real-world and virtual benefits for healthcare stakeholders, such as to offer better opportunities for surgeons to visualize, simulate, and collaborate on complex surgical procedures and techniques.
