No one is oblivion to the power of technology. Well, then the revolution has already begun. Slowly but steadily technology is charging up the world with splendid surprises. No wonder it has also caught the eye of physicians and doctors. The field of Medicine with interactive virtual reality technology contemplates to bring about some breakthrough inventions in the future. More and more doctors across the globe are resorting to technology for carrying on their usual processes.
Whether it is building 3D images of fetuses or of the brain, technology hasn’t failed to revolutionize the workings too. So, let’s get an overview of how does Virtual Reality play a role in stabilizing the medical field?
One can get a broader understanding of the patient’s internal anatomy using Interactive Virtual Reality. This technology aids physicians and radiologists spot the defects and abnormalities inside the patient’s body. For example – Splenic Artery Aneurysm an acute arterial disorder can be rectified by harnessing interactive virtual reality technology.
According to physicists, treating splenic artery aneurysm is a complicated process. This happens majorly due to the intricate nature of arteries and the anatomic variations of different patients.Now, with VR, one can view the patient’s arterial anatomy using 3D imaging. Thus, a radiologist is able to get a better picture of what necessary solutions they should resort to.
The present three-dimensional imaging used in VR is much viable in comparison to the two-dimensional ones. Thus, more and more researchers and physicians across the globe are resorting to this novel technological advancement. In comparison to the usual two-dimensional image, a 3D image renders much better clarity to the physicians.
Through VR the doctors create a 3-D image of the patient’s pre-procedural CT Scans. Later on, they can view the images of Brain wearing the VR reality type glass. They can move and rotate the images simply by moving their head. This facilitates the doctors to have an intrinsic look at the patient’s organs and tissues. Now the use of VR has made it possible to look through the internal organs of the patients. It is almost impossible to surmise this in real.
This makes one get a broader understanding of the spatial relationships happening between an aneurysm and arteries in the body.
In order to check the accuracy of this technology, researchers conducted experiments using VR. Applying both VR and Non-VR methods, they conducted evaluation on spatial arterial aneurysm cases.Researchers also measured the accuracy of the arterial inflow and outflow. Based on the results derived, the improvements in studies ranked more when done using VR technology. The rank of the accuracy of VR was much greater than those acquired in the standard method.
With the onset of VR technologies, researchers are still more confident in treating ailments related to the brain. This has raised the level of confidence amongst researchers. Comparing VR to the standard methods, the rates of generation are higher in case of former. The important reason stated for this is its advantage in Pre-operative planning of treatment.
Doctors have found VR to be extremely helpful in building required solutions for the treatment of the illness. The rate of accuracy is higher in case of VR. Hence the level of error is much lower in this case, leaving no room for error.
With the advent of interactive virtual reality, researchers are also hoping to see a reduction in the operative time. With timely treatment, patients will be able to recoup sooner. This also reduces the risk of radiation which is more in other standard methods.Thus, the medical field embracing technology is all set to revolutionize the methods of treatment upscaling rate of cure.
