The idea of using holograms for medical use is the easy part. Making it work is a whole different story.
The project started out with the challenge to transform CT/MR-images into 3D-holographic-models. The project grew to include an experimental application that brought the optimal mixed reality experience for surgeons to better plan surgical procedures. The vision of the project was to contribute to provide a solution where mixed reality could be used and interacted with during diagnostics, planning and even during surgery.
The project provides a firm foundation to further develop surgical planning tools, and has contributed to applications for liver surgery, paediatric heart surgery and adult heart valve placement.
