Medivis, medical imaging and visualization company, has unveiled its surgical augmented reality platform SurgicalAR for surgical applications. Leveraging Microsoft HoloLens, surgical AR enables physicians to access patient data and represent it visually in a three-dimensional model for doctors to refer to as they plan surgeries. It allows superior precision, and real-time decision making in and out of the operating room and physicians can further mitigate surgical complications and ensure patient safety.
Osamah Choudhry, co-founder, Medivis noted surgeons' dependency on 2-D images to display patient data which requires surgical practitioners to turn their visual attention away from the patient. By adding to this, he said physicians are also forced to use their imagination to mentally connect and display data to accurately plan and perform surgery with precision, which he called difficult and inefficient.
Medivis is integrating some machine learning capabilities to make SurgicalAR potent to identify the most pertinent information from patients’ medical records and diagnostics history as they begin to plan the surgical process. SurgicalAR serves physicians with
• Improved surgical planning and performance with accurate depth perception.
• Real-time decision making as AR brings raw image data in a hands-free spatial environment.
• Improved patient outcome and safety.
Surgical AR is Medivis' first product and launched with an investment of $2.3 million led by Initialized Capital. The company claims their product as the first end-to-end surgical imaging solution making use of the quantum leaps in augmented reality and artificial intelligence allowing users to have superior understanding, confidence, efficiency, and precision for every patient.
Founded by surgeons, radiologists, and engineers and headquartered in New York, Medivis works with the mission of leveraging augmented reality and artificial intelligence to advance surgical safety and precision.
