Chinese hospital uses VR in heart surgery training
A hospital in Beijing is pioneering the use of virtual reality (VR) technology to help train doctors to perform heart surgeries. Researchers from Fuwai Hospital, under the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, have built a 3D heart model with typical CT images of heart disease patients. They routed the 3D model to a head-mounted display through VR software developed by a Hangzhou company. Users equipped with a headset and a motion controller will not only get a 360-degree view of the anatomic structure of a patient's heart but can also interact with some virtual features.
