Encounters in the virtual world can have a major impact in reality.
Now, a Hamburg startup is using mixed reality to improve provision in the medical industry.
Their software converts CT scans or X-rays into 3D models, which can then be viewed with the help of augmented reality glasses.
Thanks to artificial intelligence, the holograms can be split into segments and realistically coloured.
The new technology enables medical professionals to recognise correlations in the body, simulate operations in advance and even project images directly onto patients during surgery.
It also makes procedures easier and enhances remote support. As for patients, visualisation can be a powerful tool in understanding diagnoses.
Smartphone videos, meanwhile, already provide information on vascular constriction.
