Virtual and Augmented Reality

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are being used in healthcare for clinician training, patient education, advanced visualization of complex anatomy in medical imaging and for procedural guidance. Augmented reality fuses images over the person's field of view to augment what they see. This is also called mixed reality. Virtual reality uses a visor headset to completely immerse the user in a virtual environment. 

CentraCare completed the first structural heart procedure in the world guided by a new 4-D hologram technology developed by EchoPixel. The augmented reality technology aims to reduce reduce procedure time, improve accuracy of the procedure, and reduce risk of complications.
