AR Surgeon’s Visor Could Slash Operating Times

Employing novel photonics technology, European scientists are developing a new type of augmented reality (AR) surgical visor to improve accuracy of procedures. The system can display anesthetic and medical data while superimposing a patient’s X-ray over the body, meaning surgeons do not have to look away during an operation. The developers say this approach can reduce operation times by 20 minutes for every 3 hours.
