Global Augmented and Virtual Reality in Healthcare Market: Overview
Technological progress over the years have brought about a sea-change in the way in which patients are diagnosed and treated. They have also helped in improving the training procedure of medical practitioners. While CT scans and wearable technology are some of the new technologies that have already redefined the medical landscape, the futuristic technologies of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are well on their way to bring about further seismic shift in the domain.
Put simply, augmented reality (AR) helps display real-time digital information and media, such as videos and 3D models, leveraging the camera view of smartphones, PCs, and tablets, or using wearable tech, namely wearable glasses and viewfinder. Virtual reality (VR), on the hand, builds a 3D world completely detaching the user from reality.
