Application of holographic augmented reality for external approaches to the frontal sinus

In this article, authors explain a system to improve precision for the localisation of frontal sinus before surgery. This method use holographic reconstruction from CT scans images and Magic Leap AR goggles for visualization.

Our team developed an AR system to create a 3‐dimensional (3D) hologram of key anatomical structures, based on CT scans images. Using Magic Leap AR goggles for visualization, the frontal sinus hologram was aligned to the surface anatomy in 6 fresh cadaveric heads’ anatomic boundaries, and the boundaries of the frontal sinus were demarcated based on the margins of the fused image. Trephinations and osteoplastic flap approaches were performed. The specimens were re‐scanned to assess the accuracy of the osteot
