Surgeons use HoloLens to peer into patients’ legs

At St. Mary’s Hospital a team from Imperial College London use a Hololens to see “inside” the body and to prepare surgical interventions.

All of the patients first underwent CT scans, to obtain 3D images of the bones and blood vessels in the injured limb. When the HoloLens-wearing doctors were subsequently performing the surgery, those images were superimposed on their view of the leg – to them, it was as if they could actually see through the skin.
