Augmented Reality Surgical Navigation Minimizes Radiation Exposure
Another use of Augmented Reality in the Healthcare and Medical industry has been revealed in a new study. The article is written by HospiMedica International staff writers and is entitled Augmented Reality Surgical Navigation Minimizes Radiation Exposure.
A new study suggests that using an augmented reality surgical navigation (ARSN) system in a hybrid operating room (OR) environment can minimize occupational radiation exposure.
Researchers at Karolinska University Hospital (Stockholm, Sweden), the Karolinska Institutet (KI; Solna, Sweden), and Philips Healthcare (Philips; Best, the Netherlands) conducted a study involving 20 patients scheduled for spine surgery with pedicle screw placement.
The surgical procedures were performed in a hybrid OR using the ceiling-mounted Philips Allura Clarity Flexmove robotic C-arm, with the aid of an integrated ARSN system.
