Virtual reality, contrary to popular belief, is not only a tool for entertainment and video games, but also a great way to gain new knowledge and skills. To follow the modern trends want teachers medical school Staffordshi of the University who plan to apply virtual reality for the training of students and improving the skills of practitioners.
Interactive simulators virtual reality will help doctors to study human anatomy in three dimensions, which will give them an opportunity to apply a more integrated approach to the treatment of the detection of life-threatening diseases (eg, aortic aneurysm). As stated by a representative of interventional radiology School of medicine Stanford University Zlatko Devcic,
“Treatment of aneurysms of the splenic artery can be very difficult due to the nature of the disease and the anatomical characteristics of specific patients. The new platform will allow you to see the body anatomy in three dimensions, as if the bodies right in front of us that can help for fast and complete treatment plan, prepare the necessary equipment and tools. A new application of virtual reality technology with the use of images and visualization system displays the patient with breakthrough visual quality”.
Virtual reality, among other things, is able to translate procedural computed tomography of the patient in a three-dimensional image that the doctor can move and explore in the virtual space. This approach ensures that the study of organs and tissues of patients without surgical intervention.
“So we can conduct a preliminary examination, which is a very important step in the successful treatment of the patient, therefore, the value of VR is difficult to overestimate. New technology gives us a completely different view on the treatment and planning of operations.”
