The agency of the United States government responsible for the regulation of foods, medicines, cosmetics, medical devices, biological products and blood derivatives (FDA for its acronym in English) has given the go-ahead for the incorporation of augmented reality systems in the operating rooms of the country.



 A novel system based on OpenSight systems and Microsoft glasses. With the Hololens of the operating systems giant, doctors will be able to see 2D, 3D and 4D images of patients and superimpose them on the patient's body. "This is a transformative technology that will link the preoperative image with augmented reality to improve the accuracy, speed and safety of medical procedures," explains Wendell Gibby, CEO of Novarad and co-creator of OpenSight. 

This technology allows simultaneous visualization of the 3D images of the patient in RA and the real patient and their real environments. The technique can reduce operating times and improve surgical planning and understanding of anatomical relationships. An advance that allows to reduce operating times and improve surgical planning and understanding of anatomical relationships. "This internal visualization can now be achieved without the surgeon making an incision, improving the results in a more precise world of medicine," Gibby adds. 

The technology also allows a multi-user experience, since multiple HoloLens glasses can be used among physicians for training or clinical purposes. This technology also serves as an apprenticeship for future doctors to carry out their preparatory practices, explains Novarad.
