Inspection (Medical)

Description

AR-assisted inspection systems display relevant medical & dental records on demand by health care workers and overlays digital information on the patient for evaluation and decision support.

AR Technologies

AR-assisted medical inspection uses any technology for authoring, detection, recognition and rendering. Display options for AR-assisted medical inspection that permit the professional to use both hands are highly preferred. The user interface for AR-assisted medical inspection can be speech recognition, gesture recognition, eye-gaze recognition or touchscreen.

Integration of AR-assisted medical inspection with patient record management technologies and systems is highly desirable.

Advanced medical inspection systems using Augmented Reality can support the professional in unfamiliar procedures or cases with remote expert interaction and feedback with integrated video conferencing and collaboration tools.

Benefits
