Using Augmented Reality for medical applications : Part 3

This is the final article in a 3 article series introducing the concept of k-space and discussing how to plan for an exit pupil expander design.

Communication can often be a struggle for both patients and doctors. Many of us have experienced times when we have a hard time explaining our symptoms to our physician, though we know something is not right and needs attention. This leaves doctors in the dark for knowing how to diagnose an ailment, sometimes leading to a process of trial and error in an effort to find the exact issue and corresponding treatment plan.

Using Augmented Reality (AR) for medical applications – Part 1

This is the first of three articles introducing the concept of k-space and discussing how to plan for an exit pupil expander design.

Augmented Reality (AR) is no longer just for gaming. The accurate simulation of a real-world environment can also be beneficial for multiple work environments, including the medical field. AR enables doctors to better explain a disease or treatment to a patient, as well as plays a role in planning (and in some cases performing) surgeries and therapies. Some are taking it a step further, using 3D visualization of DNA test results or to view patient records for quick analysis and diagnosis. This technology can also be used in the classroom, training medical students through the use of interactive 3D anatomical models. And for medical sales, the use of a virtual experience can demonstrate their equipment quickly.
