VIRTUAL AND AUGMENTED REALITY: GAME CHANGERS IN MEDICAL IMAGING

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) offer tremendous potential to revolutionize the way in which we display, manipulate and acquire information in diagnostic imaging as well as the way we utilize imaging for image guided interventional procedures. Recent advances in optical head mounted (OHM) displays particularly for video gaming have resulted in the emergence of individualized cost effective, mainstream applications of VR and AR. Advances in stereoscopic displays, positional / environmental sensors, and microcomputing have resulted in the development of wearable technology that will introduce novel ways of not only displaying information but transforming how we interact with our environment.
