Surgical Theatre debuts Precision VR technology that allows patients to walk inside their own anatomy

April 5, 2019 – Surgical Theater has announced the debut of ‘Precision VR Enterprise’ at the 10th Annual Becker’s Hospital Review Meeting in Chicago, USA.

Precision VR is a 360-degree virtual reality technology that allows patients to walk inside their own anatomy alongside their surgeon. VR models are constructed and rendered based upon a patient’s CT and MRI scans, culminating in a patient-specific 360° virtual tour. By putting a VR headset on the patient, surgeons are able to walk with them inside their own pathology, enhancing their understanding of their condition and treatment plan.

Surgical Theater’s enterprise solution enables hospitals to achieve deployment on a system-wide scale, including satellite locations. Precision VR may now be connected to a hospital’s own network while complying with its security policies. All 360° VR cases are stored in the hospital’s data center and are accessible to any Precision VR Application on the network. Surgical Theatre states that Precision VR offers an “immersive approach” to patient engagement and surgical visualization for Neuro, Spine, ENT, Thoracic, Cardiac, and various Digestive Health applications (i.e.: Pancreatic Cancer).

“Surgical Theater’s visualization platform is a technology that will transform healthcare,” said Moty Avisar, CEO and Co-founder of Surgical Theater. “The ability for a surgeon and patient to immerse themselves fully into the patient’s specific anatomy provides an unparalleled and never-before-seen view of anatomical structure that has been shown to improve economic and patient satisfaction outcomes.”
