Platform for Interactive Immersion into Imaging Data with an Augmented Reality Interface


Abstract

Augmented reality (AR) visualization through head mounted displays (HMDs), such as the Microsoft HoloLens, has shown tremendous potential in many fields. Since a wide range of medical applications can benefit from this technology, worldwide researchers and developers have focused major effort and innovation in developing tools that assist physicians with diagnosis and image-guided interventions, as well as image guided surgery planning simulation and post-operative assessment. However, the computational power needed by many of these medical applications to run in real-time makes a single HMD implementation technically impossible. As a result, the need of a separate computational unit to offload data processing and analysis algorithms is deemed necessary. In this defense, I present the modular platform we have been developing and experimenting with using ergonomic and efficient human-cyber interfaces for interactive immersion of the physician into the data while enabling data analytics and processing.
