The rendered 3D model of a patient is mapped back onto the patient, which saves the usual chore of gathering data from all around in order to plan for surgery (Photo courtesy of Medivis).
A new augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications has received 510(k) clearance for clinical use in the operating room by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The enterprise SurgicalAR platform developed by medical technology company Medivis (New York, NY, USA) integrates the latest advancements in AR, artificial intelligence (AI), and computer vision to advance surgical visualization, thereby reducing surgical complications and improving patient outcomes while lowering costs for healthcare systems.
