Health and disease holograms
By Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato
Augmented reality, namely the viewing of 3D holograms in addition to information from the surrounding world will be one of medical science’s next great leaps forward. In particular, together with biomedical image technologies (TAC, ecography), it will enable specific patient 3D models to be viewed and interacted with for the organs of interest in an intuitive, interactive and shareable way. With this technology it is possible to virtually enter the human body to explore its anatomy and pathologies with diagnosis, cure and, especially, medical education benefits.
