Reality technologies help to record and repeat some of the best procedures for students to acquire first-hand experience.

FREMONT, CA: Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are technologies that combine real-world and virtual components. These methods are especially beneficial for making people aware of prototypes or assisting them in understanding the operation of any item that has not yet been entirely manufactured. Although AR and VR may appear to be comparable at first look, several significant differences exist. AR incorporates various parts of an individual's actual environment into its results, with the most well-known example being the Pokemon GO game. With the help of the necessary headsets, VR gives a more immersive experience by allowing the wearer to experience everything inside the headset.

Enhances functional performance 

AR and VR technology is used to create a digital twin. In the pre-operative planning phase, the physician can use AR modeling to make a thorough plan, analyze a virtual organ, check for abnormalities, and simulate functional performance to forecast the procedure's clinical outcome. The surgeon can see the movement of the catheter through AR glasses, modify it as needed, and take rapid measurements.

Provides real-time information

Some technologies display digital information on top of a patient's body in real-time, which could aid improve medical school training. A gesture-sensitive user interface was also implemented in the technology, allowing individuals to interact with the AR depiction. In medical imaging, virtual reality aids planning and improves patient safety by lowering radiation dose exposure. Creating a radiation therapy plan for a patient is a time-consuming and complex operation.

Better decision making

VR provides the potential to analyze dosage intuitively, saving time while potentially improving precision and reducing adverse treatment effects. Augmented reality technology provides real-time information via a virtual screen in the exam room. The data is there before the physician's eyes, enabling faster and more natural decision-making.

It helps to transform the healthcare sector

AR-VR usage in healthcare transforms everything from how medical students study before interventional procedures to assisting PTSD patients and lowering anxiety in youngsters enduring blood testing or other painful procedures. As long as patients are isolated, healthcare organizations may consider developing or expanding virtual reality (VR) programs for self-guided rehabilitation exercises and chronic pain management.
