The combination of Augmented Reality technology and the power of today’s medical imaging modalities have resulted in a novel approach of presenting anatomy. Medical Augmented Reality has the potential to overcome many problems of previous media forms that intended to describe the complexity of the human body.
Augmented Reality takes over the task of mentally mapping the patient specific anatomic information onto the patient. Reseachers have identified this crucial advantage to be applied for various workflows in the medical field such as diagnostic tasks, surgical navigation, medical training and education or patient education.
The Medical Augmented Reality Blog is supposed to give an introduction to this exiting field. Its objective is to attract interest of people who want to get involved in this exiting domain. We are going to present small reports on recently published work, announce upcoming events, publish interviews with key persons and introduce bussiness ventures in the field of Medical Augmented Reality.
