Augmented Reality and Complex 3D Positioning Tasks in Medicine
Some of the most powerful applications for AR will coming from the field of medicine. The ability to overlay graphic elements that are spatially correlated and stabilized within a real-world view — as the observer moves — has the potential to revolutionize many procedures involving 3D positioning tasks.
In the example below, researchers at Duke University are investigating the use of the Microsoft HoloLens display as a means to assist doctors during “blind” surgeries like extraventricular drain (EVD) placement.
