Augmented Reality in Medicine

One good idea can save an incredible amount of time for medical professionals and can really ease their work. For example, radiology might benefit from such an augmented reality:

You can give it a try here.

  1. No, radiology would benefit from a decent way to display a series of images securely over the web. Yes, that is trivial to implement (in theory), but it is not trivial to integrate with the layers of impossible bloatware and apathetic bureaucracy.

    For example, Greenwich Hospital, a “Hospitals & Health Networks Top 100 Most Wired” 7 years running [http://www.meditech.com/AboutMeditech/pages/customerachievemostwiredhhn2007.htm] _requires_ IE6 and Windows XP to view radiology scans. Why? Because their IT guy refuses to enable the service on any other system because “other systems are not accredited and we cannot liable for use on unaccredited systems.” So, physicians will physically drive to the hospital (20-30 min) to use the computers there (10-15 min) to… use a web app —hypothetically available over a secure Internet connection via the VPN…. and then drive back (20-30 min) to their office.

    But yah, if you want to be geekchic, fine, yah, augmented reality, woo hoo.
