While medical imaging has radically evolved, images are displayed in the same way they were in 1950. Visual data are shown on 2D flat screens, on displays that force health care providers to look away from the patient, and even away from their own hands while operating. AR’s ability to concurrently display imaging data and other patient information could save lives and decrease medical errors. This is especially true for procedures done outside an operating room; during “bedside procedures” patients may be most at risk and AR could provide the greatest benefits. We are currently developing and testing several AR tools for patient care and diagnostics, including intubation and ultrasound.
