On augmented reality in medicine

Eugenia Namiot


Augmented reality is an actual trend in modern computer engineering. The main task of augmented reality is to transfer three-dimensional virtual objects in real-time into a three-dimensional real environment. This technology differs from virtual reality technology, in which the user can fully immerse himself in the virtual world. Thus, due to the possibility of generating any 3D-objects and their further integration into the real environment, augmented reality technologies are widely used in surgical practice, namely in training future surgeons. With the help of augmented reality, it has become possible to simulate various surgeries online, which greatly facilitates, for example, the practical part of the training of future surgeons. Using these technologies, the doctor can learn different surgical manipulations without using different real training material, which is often quite expensive and very different from the real tissues and organs that the surgeon has to face in the future. This article will consider various engineering features of augmented reality, which are used in different sections of surgery.
