Augmented reality has a wide array of areas that it can be of service. These include entertainment, medicine, business, education, and gaming. One of the most beneficial examples of an area that has been improved from augmented reality is in healthcare and medicine. It supports the practice, training, and planning of surgical procedures, and it provides surgeons with patient monitoring information and allows patient imaging records.
This process includes functional videos to be retrieved and superimposed. These include a virtual X-ray view, or real-time images from microscopy probes, ultrasound, the visual ability to view the position of a tumor in the video of an endoscope and radiation exposure risks from X-ray imaging apparatuses. It is now expected that doctors and nurses record patient information through unconventional methods, such as gesture technology paired with AR glasses, which allows the doctor to see critical details in plain sight.
Augmented reality is a process that creates an illusion to a person and the world around them. This makes the surrounding around the people to be altered. There are a number of fields that can benefit from augmented reality. One of those in the medical field. It can help train those entering the medical field.
They can wear the headset to get a first-hand experience of the anatomy to be able to perform a surgery on it. Another field that could benefit from augmented reality in retail. With an app, the customer could see the product first hand and experience the features without buying it.
