VR medical surgical practice
- Jan 22, 2018 -

In medical schools, students can perform "autopsy" and various surgical exercises in virtual labs. With this technology, training costs are greatly reduced as it is not subject to specimens, venues, etc. Some virtual reality systems for medical training, internship and research have a very high degree of simulation and their advantages and effects are incalculable and incomparable. For example, a catheter-inserted arterial simulator may enable a student to repeatedly practice catheterization into an artery; an eye surgery simulator that creates a three-dimensional stereoscopic image based on the anterior ocular structure of the human eye with real-time tactile feedback that the student uses We can observe the whole process of simulating the removal of the lens, and observe the structure of the anterior eye vessels, iris and scleral tissue and corneal transparency. There are anesthesia virtual reality system, oral surgery simulator.

With virtual reality technology, surgeons can simulate surgeries on the display, move organs within the body, find the best surgical solution, and improve proficiency, before the real surgery. Virtual reality technology can play a very important role in long-distance remote-controlled surgery, planning of complicated surgery, information guidance in surgical procedures, prognosis of surgical outcomes, improvement of living conditions of disabled people, and even research and development of new drugs.
