Using the Augmented Reality technology 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.
AR provides surgeons with patient monitoring data in the style of a fighter pilot's heads-up display, and allows patient imaging records, including functional videos, to be accessed and overlaid. Examples include a virtual X-ray view based on prior tomography or on real-time images from ultrasound and confocal microscopy probes, visualizing the position of a tumor in the video of an endoscope, or radiation exposure risks from X-ray imaging devices.
Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time. Unlike virtual reality, which creates a totally artificial environment, augmented reality uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it. CellBeans are focused in creating augmented reality apps which are written in special 3D programs that allow our developers to tie animation or contextual digital information in the computer program to an augmented reality "marker" in the real world. When a computing device's AR app or browser plug-in receives digital information from a known marker, it begins to execute the marker's code and layer the correct image or images.
3D augmented reality image may help a radiologist to deliver a clear picture of the structural anomalies and provides a more accurate diagnosis.
Healthcare providers are constantly evaluating 2D images to diagnose illnesses, assess the effectiveness of treatments, and better understand a patient’s overall condition. CellBeans generates 3D, interactive visualizations of that data and allows physicians to interact with them in a more realistic, contextualized way.
A radiologist, surgeon, and patient can improve their communication and collaboration with computer-generated graphics with this additional information. AR/VR enabled imaging may provide additional arrow or note(s) in imaging for communication at ease between aforesaid. It may also improve overall patient care procedures.
