Cutting edge technology

Introduction: As a civilian, the people's health is the most concerned, and the demand for medical services is getting higher and higher. The medical and health undertakings are related to thousands of households and are a major livelihood issue. As a hot field in the VR+ industry, “VR+Medical” has always been the focus of public opinion.

Near the end of the year, the medical documentary "Human World" with a watercress score of 9.7 was released in the second quarter. After two years, it just slammed on the topic "Come on the world" Hot search list.

As a civilian, the people's health is the most concerned, and the demand for medical services is getting higher and higher. The medical and health care is related to thousands of households is a major livelihood issue. As a hot field in the VR+ industry, “VR+Medical” has always been the focus of public opinion.

Recently, Pirates Technology and a certain ophthalmology organization successfully developed an ophthalmology-related application and prepared to conduct clinical treatment for the hospital. It is believed that patients will be able to treat ophthalmology through VR head in the near future. Really popular in hospitals.

During surgery, the surgical screen and related information are collected and processed by a special device under the microscope and transmitted to the VR device. Through special VR glasses, the experience is clearly magnified by every detail and step of the operation, including the size of the incision, the angle, and the depth of the intraocular lens implant.

Because ophthalmology is a very delicate operation, the space in the eyeball and eyelid area is relatively narrow, and there are very rich blood vessels and nerves. The medical students are more abstract only by the text description in the textbook and their own imagination. With VR technology, the anatomical structure of the eye can be stereoscopically presented, allowing medical students to visually see the structure of the eye.

VR technology is an attempt by human beings to break through their own limitations. The reach of VR technology has extended to the medical field, so what kind of spark will VR technology produce when it meets medical treatment? Let the stolen dream sauce tell you one by one.

In fact, in the medical field, the penetration of virtual reality technology seems to be more rapid than we think. The combination of VR and medical care can be reflected in three aspects: medical training, clinical diagnosis and treatment, and psychological intervention.

In medical education and training, the practical skills and accumulation of experience of medical students have always been very important, butMedical students are only limited to the study of books. They see flat things, lack of stereoscopic concepts, and cannot interact. And VR technology can make medical training more realistic and reliable. It collects a large number of real photos of surgery, builds a data model, restores the real environment, and highlights key steps in the key steps. Finally, the operator can learn the whole process of the operation completely and systematically, and through repeated operations, it is faster. Proficiency in the corresponding surgical techniques.

According to British media reports, a British surgeon used virtual reality technology to broadcast a cancer operation of his own to the world. The entire operation was broadcast live to a global audience in real time through two multi-lens 360-degree cameras and 360-degree VR players. Viewers can watch this epoch-making operation through their smartphones or any virtual reality headset. Feel free to walk around the "surgery scene" and take a close look at the surgery from any angle they like.

In clinical diagnosis and treatment, VR technology can help hospitals with low-grade doctors to understand the operation path of various types of surgery more easily. In telemedicine, VR technology can make various physiological parameters of patients in foreign countries reflected in medical treatment. Experts can make timely conclusions and give corresponding treatment measures to the virtual patients in front of the experts.

In addition, how to improve the success rate, reduce the incidence of errors and shorten the operation time in actual clinical operations, the biggest consensus between doctors and patients is the introduction of necessary means such as precision instruments. Therefore, the use of VR technology in preoperative preparation and intraoperative assistance is of great value. For example, VR technology can make patients and their families understand the surgical plan more intuitively and better, obtain sufficient right to know and choose, improve the understanding of both doctors and patients, and reduce the contradiction between doctors and patients.

In addition, VR technology has also been used to relieve pain and anxiety in surgery. In Peru, a 61-year-old patient was wearing a VR headshot during her lipoma surgery in order to keep her awake throughout the surgery. The scene in the head is the alpine ruins of Machu Picchu, she is immersed in it, as if to see the ancient city on the ridge, just like a tourist.

In terms of medical intervention, VR technology is applicable to mental illness interventions and rehabilitation medical interventions.

Psychiatry is mostly reflected in brain morbid thinking and loveOther issues such as sensation, these are difficult to reproduce in real scenes. It is easier to use VR to train patients or treat brain emotions.

VR can also help treat various psychological aspects such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and autism. In today's modern society where life and work are fast-paced, the number of patients with mental illness is increasing year by year. How to effectively treat people is getting more and more people's attention. The emergence of VR technology provides an unprecedented treatment. Because VR technology is safe and effective in helping people focus on behavior, it is widely believed that VR-based mental health technology is a very promising space.

As VR technology gradually penetrates into people's lives, the application fields and scope of "VR+Medical" are also expanding. However, experts in the industry believe that no matter how convenient VR technology is to medical treatment, technology is only an auxiliary way. The greatest significance of "VR+medical" is that it can greatly improve the standardization of medical education, thus shortening the cultivation of medical talents. Cycle, reduce training costs, and release medical supplies.
