Virtual Reality (VR) medical visualization brings new levels of engagement and understanding to medical procedures and anatomy by allowing users to visualize from any angle, zoom in to microscopic levels and remove tissue layer-by-layer. Uses include patient education and training for medical professionals, whether as students or as continuing education for practicing healthcare providers.
Provider training can be done for new or existing procedures by utilizing stock 3D models or actual scan-based patient anatomy, enabling virtual market research and testing. VR training incorporates both declarative (factual knowledge) and procedural (muscle memory) learning, making it much more effective than videos or printed materials. The result is better user training that is easier to distribute with a lower overall cost.
