A radiology professor recently demonstrated the medical implications of the Microsoft hologram technology, HoloLens.

“A collaboration between Microsoft and Case Western Reserve University showed how medical students can interact with a 3-D rendering of the human body, instead of using cadavers. The device also enables people to see a fully-animated 3-D heart from any angle. The HoloLens offered a detailed view of the human body and gave users the ability to navigate through muscle tissue to internal organs.

The collaborative care model may help push the adoption of technology like HoloLens. For physicians and other medical professionals working together on a patient’s care, the Microsoft hologram technology device can be a way to view and share medical information such as 3-D medical imaging (e.g., MRIs or a 3-D rendering of human organs). By offering new methods through which physicians can communicate, the HoloLens platform can contribute to a more efficient healthcare system.”
