    Painting the Patient with Holographic Data

    The Scopis Holographic Navigation Platform will enable surgeons to take advantage of augmented reality during spinal surgery or neurosurgery. Scopis relies on Microsoft HoloLens, a type of smart lens which projects virtual information synchronized with the real world. For example, the system can project the exact position of pedicle screws into the surgeon’s field of view.
    This makes the operation faster and more accurate. Using simple gestures, medical professionals also can generate virtual monitors in their visual field. This gives them access to useful additional information without taking their eyes off the surgical field.
