Augmented reality could transform medical education.
I’ve been watching closely the developments related to the use of Google Glass in medicine. Once I wrote that start-ups focusing on Google Glass and medicine should be able to join accelerators and incubators. Fortunately, this step has been taken as Palomar Health and Qualcomm Life teamed up to build an incubator for developers called Glassomics. […]
Since the launch of Google Glass, I’ve been closely following updates and developments related to healthcare and medicine. It seems clinicians worldwide can leverage its potentials but there is a long way to go to reach wide clinical adoption. A few concepts have to be taken into consideration: Healthcare institutions should be open to experimenting […]
It’s not the first time I say Google Glass can be the biggest hit in medical technology this yeas, and now as the number of good examples is still rising, it’s becoming more and more evident. Here are a few cases and experiments. Rafael Grossmann, MD, FACS had a pilot project with this team about […]

What if surgeons could use those holograms to prepare for complex surgeries or even support the operations themselves? HoloLens appears to be the platform for the medical application of mixed reality, so I was curious how […]
