VR visualization supports research on molecular networks

The larger and more complex networks are, the more difficult their visualization on the screen becomes. Conventional computer programs quickly reach their limits. This challenge was addressed by network scientist Jörg Menche and his research group at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. They developed a VR platform … Read more

Digital Health In Plastic Surgery And Cosmetics

When it comes to reconstructive and aesthetic procedures, it might prove challenging to visualize the end results on the actual patient. However, with AR technology, patients can see how their appearance changes after a procedure, even before entering the OT. As usual, The Medical Futurist made a very impressive summary of the evolution of digital … Read more

Augmented Reality Perceives Real-Time Pain of Patients

CLARAi (clinical augmented reality and artificial intelligence) is a experimental tool developed by the University of Michigan to measure and to show “pain level” as objectively as possible. It uses Microsoft HoloLens AR glasses to help physicians to visualize pain “on the head” of patient! Another great advantage of CLARAi is to possibility to transport … Read more

How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Can Revolutionize Science?

In this article, Martijn Roelandse introduces a “mixed-reality Hackathon” hosted by Springer Nature and dedicated to exploration of new uses of AR and VR in sciences. It’s very interesting to see that today, many 3D observations (made with confocal devices for example) are still seen on 2D screens! Immersive technologies could revolutionize it, maybe more … Read more

How AR and Computer Mapping are Leading to Safer Medical Procedures

A very simple way to use smartphone AR to help doctors in information visualization ! At the University of Twente in the Netherlands, a research team is developing an economical smartphone technology based on the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technology, along with augmented reality (AR). The device allows doctors to reconstruct 3D body sections … Read more
