VR in the OR: Using Virtual Reality for More Effective Surgical Visualization

10:00am - 11:00am Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W320

Description

The ability to see clearly is one of the most critical -- and expensive -- aspects of healthcare. The 21st century operating room is cluttered with outdated visualization equipment that distracts surgeons and limits their ability to navigate obstacles during surgery.

What would the ideal vision system for surgeons look like? It would liberate them from having to take their eyes off the patient to squint into a microscope, glance at a navigational display, or set up the x-ray machine. And ultimately it would keep them focused on the actual surgical field in front of them.

We know that virtual reality provides the opportunity for surgeons to expand their training outside the operating room, now the modern operating room is implementing this innovative technology for more effective outcomes. Join HTC VIVE, Proprio, and Seattle Children’s Hospital to discuss how this technology provides new opportunities and best practices for surgeons.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss ROI of implementing emerging technology into the operating room
  • Discover how VR/robotics is being incorporated into the operating room and how to replicate it
  • Identify how VR can provide more insight to create more successful surgery outcomes and how to implement it.
