Can Virtual & Augmented Reality improve medical education?

Can Virtual and Augmented reality improve the medical training process?

Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality are changing the world as we know it, every day we are discovering new uses for these innovative technologies. The medical field is one that is especially excited to see the applications of VR and AR evolve, as the implementation of these frontier technologies could improve medical education considerably.  The nature of practical medical training has changed minimally over the last decades. However, the feasible application of VR & AR for medical education purposes could modernize the training process for medical students, requiring less training performed on patients. Understandably when education for treatment methods improves it allows for medical staff to address the needs of patients in an increasingly comprehensive manner. And it It is these notions that form the basis for our upcoming Scithon.

Next week researchers from the Division of Urotechnology, University Medical Center Freiburg, in cooperation with the Department of Augmented Vision, German Center for Artificial Intelligence, and the Stryker Stryker Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG, will gather to compete to find the best approach to implementing these technologies. VR & AR are ever growing fields, with new information published daily, so the teams will us Iris.AI to find the most relevant papers to this query. Because Iris.AI shortens the amount of time needed for research discovery, it enables teams to move to the next stage in research & development more quickly.  This correlates to identifying new solutions and avenues for treatment of patients more quickly which can ultimately save lives.
We are excited to put Iris to work on such a considerable task with far reaching results and benefits. We look forward to sharing these promising results with you next week.
