The Bleeding Edge of VR & Healthcare

On June 1, the first Virtual Reality and Healthcare Symposium to focus on the impact of virtual reality on health and medicine will take place at George Washington University. VR Voice, a content vertical on all things virtual reality, is launching the conference. A full day of presentations, exhibitors and networking will bring together technologists and healthcare experts to discuss the ways that virtual reality can, and already is, training and supporting health professionals, changing lives and healing patients.

The Milken Institute School is a fitting host for this first-of-its kind event. Their website lists their mission as “To provide the best public health educational experience incorporating our core values of scholarship and leadership, scientific rigor and policy analysis, and training to foster the next generation of thought leaders, practitioners, policy makers and scientists who will transform public health worldwide especially for underserved and poor populations.”

“Virtual reality technology is an innovative visualization platform that facilitates an intuitive communication between healthcare providers and patients, resulting in enhanced understanding of the treatment plan and consequently, higher patient satisfaction,” said Moty Avisar, CEO and Co-Founder of Surgical Theater.  “Our focus with Surgical Theater’s Precision VR is to allow the surgeon to guide his or her patient through a surgical plan by virtually stepping into a patient-specific 360-degree VR reconstruction of their anatomy and pathology. The surgeon and the patient walk between the pathology and vessels, and by turning their heads can see the skull base at their feet, the brain tissue behind their back, and vessels to their right and left. This same 360-degree VR reconstruction is equally essential to the surgical team for pre-operative surgical planning, and in the operating room visualization.”
