Effectiveness of the HoloLens mixed-reality headset in minimally invasive surgery: a simulation-based feasibility study

In this article, authors show that the use of Hololens AR helmet improves endoscopic surgery. With a test panel of 72 people from novice to expert level, this study shows a better efficiency than with conventional screens, especially for less skilled people. This study demonstrates that the device facilitated improved outcomes of performance in novices and was widely accepted as a surgical visual aid by all groups. The HoloLens represents a feasible alternative to the…

Is virtual reality the next frontier of Alzheimer’s diagnosis?

A research team of Cambridge University published an article last month about the use of VR to test development of dementia. For example, a simple VR test of navigation could help physicians to detect signs of Alzheimer’s disease earlier than with standard cognitive tests. VR technologies could also help to test more accurately specific drugs for the disease. Doctors diagnose dementia in around 10 million people every year, and 60–70% of these new diagnoses detect…
