We've already seen Microsoft HoloLens used in a number of different industrial applications, but the mixed reality headset is also showing potential in teh medical field. Not only is the headset being used to help design operating rooms, but a recent livestream has shown off how it can be used by surgeons during surgery as well.
French surgeons, led by Dr. Thomas Grégory, head of the department of orthopedic and traumatological surgery of AP-HP Avicenne Hospital, livestreamed what they're calling the "world's first surgical intervention performed with a mixed reality collaborative platform." Using HoloLens, the surgeons were able to superimpose holograms over patients to help visualize portions of the patient's anatomy while operating. And because each surgeon was wearing a headset, each could work collaboratively, viewing the same model in the same position.
Though the process can seem clunky at times throughout the demonstration, it's an interesting look at how an evolving technology could apply to delicate procedures going forward. We've held off on embedding the video here because it includes graphic images of a real operation, but if you're interested in seeing it for yourself, you can view the surgery on YouTube now.
