Virtual Reality in the Medical World

Many virtual reality improvements in healthcare save lives worldwide.

It’s becoming common knowledge that implementing VR tools in medicine is not a new method; the first Medicine Meets VR Conference was in 1992. Since then, virtual reality has proved itself many times in the field of healthcare. Now, hospitals and doctors use it widely for surgery and therapeutic purposes.

Doctors use visual imagery from CAT scans in surgeries to construct 3D models of a patient’s anatomy. In this way, they practice difficult surgeries, locate tumors, and place incisions. Medical Realities, a UK organization, made history by live streaming a surgery in 360-degree virtual reality.

Dr. Neil Martin, the head’s chair of neurosurgery, uses VR to train specialists for the operating room. Dr. Neil and his colleagues work with equipment established by the company Surgical Theater. They use virtual reality headsets so that surgeons can step in 3D models of the patient’s brain before the surgery. Dr. Martin explains that using VR technology for exploring, made their job is easier. For instance, if a patient has a malignant tumor, the doctors can study it from all sides and notice potential complications. Furthermore, they can mentally get ready for a high-stakes operation.
