Revinax Using HoloLens for Surgical Training – VRFocus

.@revinax_ has begun using @HoloLens for surgical training -

  • Doctors have already begun using the mixed reality (MR) device for applications such as consultation, surgical planning and sports medicine.
  • A surgical procedure was performed successfully at the Montpellier University Hospital in France under the supervision of neurosurgeon Dr Lonjon, with a surgical team equipped with HoloLens headsets, which provided additional information and imagery during the procedure, such as a 3D video of a similar surgical procedure, or patient scans…
  • The patient imagery and planning feature also avoids unnecessary distractions: we now no longer need to check these data on the computer during the operation,” said Dr Nicolas Lonjon, neurosurgeon and teacher at the Montpellier University Hospital.
  • The use of the HoloLens in this way, with the Revinax mixed reality surgical environment has been viewed as something of a breakthrough.
  • The company has noted that though surgical demonstrations are often at the core of training, only the surgeon has a perfect view of the procedure, which can mean students miss vital details.

Microsoft’s HoloLens appears to have emerged as the preferred device for use within a medical setting. Doctors have already begun using the mixed reality (MR) device for applications such as consultation, surgical planning and sports medicine. Now Revinax are using the technology for live surgery.

A surgical procedure was performed successfully at the Montpellier University Hospital in France under the supervision of neurosurgeon Dr Lonjon, with a surgical team equipped with HoloLens headsets, which provided additional information and imagery during the procedure, such as a 3D video of a similar surgical procedure, or patient scans and medical information, all within the surgeon’s field of view.

“This is the perfect tool for any surgery. As a teaching surgeon, I can create my own tutorials to deliver them to students before and, now also, during surgery. They can use the tutorial as a reminder during the operation. The patient imagery and planning feature also avoids unnecessary distractions: we now no longer need to check these data on the computer during the operation,” said Dr Nicolas Lonjon, neurosurgeon and teacher at the Montpellier University Hospital.

The company are already considering how else to apply the technology, turning its attention to surgical training. The company has noted that though surgical demonstrations are often at the core…
