Solving Problems in Medicine with Advanced Visualization and Immersive Therapeutics


This talk will address several common problems associated with traditional systems in medicine and how Extended Reality technologies are solving them. This will include the use of Virtual Reality for preoperative planning and surgical simulation in neurosurgery and the impact of virtual reality on patient consultation and informed consent. Further attention will be given to the deployment of Augmented Reality technologies to help make brain and spine surgery safer and less invasive, including recent published data on early outcomes. Finally, we will cover broad scale development and deployment of Immersive Therapeutics for pain and anxiety as well as a comprehensive program for maternal mental health.
