Medicine of the future today
System for the study and planning of biopsies through the use of HoloLens mixed reality device. Take advantage of the full potential of the device to study, simulate and execute extraction operations using holography as clearly, precisely and intuitively as the medical professional requires.

This simulation experience becomes a reality when markers and guides appear to perform the operation on the patient's skin in the operating room.
Main features
  • Meets the DICOM standards specified by the NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association).
  • Compatible with PACS medical imaging servers.
  • Transform a CT medical test into a functional hologram.
  • 5 predefined segmentations (bones, viscera, lungs, vascular and muscle).
  • Visualization of the interior of the hologram on each axis.
  • Voice commands for each of the most important actions (move, rotate, scale, cut planes, mark objectives, manage markers...).
  • Artificial vision with the ability to identify markers on the patient in the real world and position them onto the patient's body.
  • Management of user markers to indicate points of interest in the patient.

Challenge
The main challenge of this project has been to create the planning of a biopsy that can be executed on a real patient using artificial reality and artificial vision devices, as well as offering the medical professional all the information they need in order to reduce amount of the time that the patient is in the operating room, thus ensuring the success of the operation.

Results
Thanks to the power and flexibility of the Wave Engine graphics engine, it has been possible to carry out this project on mixed reality devices. Wave Engine allows the display of real-time holograms located in the user's space and allows handling in a realistic and functional manner.
