A team from Rhode Island Hospital uses Hololens glasses to improve health education. With the help of the university’s library they also build a free repository of scientific ressources.
The team focused on creating an augmented reality representation — a holoimage — of patient anatomy. These holoimage representations are hologram-like projections that are fixed in space, said Owen Leary ’18 MD ’24, one of the student creators of the project and a current clinical research program coordinator in the Department of Neurosurgery at the RIH.
