SIR 2019: Mixed reality will be “the future” for interventional physicians


The use of mixed reality will enable interventionists to see 3D anatomy ‘in 3D’, as a hologram (as opposed to on a 2D screen). “Having holography that I can reach out, grab and move around like a virtual object is going to be amazing as we get to do new interventions,” says Atul Gupta (Philadelphia, USA), an interventional radiologist and chief medical officer of Philips Image-Guided Therapy.

Gupta spoke to Interventional News at SIR 2019 after a session on virtual reality and mixed reality.
