The need for a robust and realistic platform for simulating complex surgeries for the purposes of training as well as patient education has long been established. From the common practice of using anatomical models to the more recent usage of virtual reality headgear, surgeons have employed a wide spectrum of technologies in an attempt to both prepare as well as communicate the complexities of each procedure to their patients. The existing technologies, however, have presented challenges by the lack of patient-specificity as well as the need to wear headgear that removes the surgeon and patient from the surrounding world.
In this talk, Xenco Medical Founder and CEO Jason Haider will speak about and demonstrate the world’s first glasses free holographic surgical simulation platform, HoloMedX. Built with a holographic light-field display and a gesture-recognizing sensor, surgeons are capable of loading patient data from CT and MRI scans into the HoloMedX software, which instantly translates the slices into interactive holographic anatomy. Surgeons are also capable of adding holographic implants that match all of Xenco Medical’s spinal implants and can perform an entire simulated spine surgery in holographic space. The talk will highlight the technology behind the HoloMedX system, the applications of HoloMedX in healthcare, and will include a demonstration of the platform.
