A first specific field of application is the visualization of scan results and the corresponding planning of operations. Existing CT and MRI scans of patients and data from neuro-navigation can be divided into their component segments, colored, and visualized life-size in 3D. The spatial representation makes the situation more understandable and helps the surgeon in planning the operation.
To this end, we've developed an easy-to-use and intuitive app. The app runs directly on the HoloLens, no other devices are needed. The doctor loads the patient data directly into the HoloLens from the neuro-navigation system without further manual steps. The patient is selected using a menu in the HoloLens, then the scans are loaded directly into the glasses and visualized in 3D space. Various segments such as the head, blood vessel and individual areas of the brain are marked with colors and can be displayed or hidden. Segments can be resized and moved with gestures and voice commands.
