«A clinical paper published last October described how surgeons in Spain tested Microsoft HoloLens mixed-reality (MR) headsets and MR applications during the removal of a kidney tumor.»

«The headsets provided surgeons with real-time medical anatomical visualizations, preoperative imaging, a procedural checklist and the patient’s medical history. Technology experts believe that applications like this provide what’s known as wearable cognitive assistance (WCA) that could significantly improve clinical processes and safety, and reduce costs. These artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled devices can help health systems reduce the time to perform surgeries by as much as 30%.»
