Year of Creation


Martin J. Citardi, Chair of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery in McGovern Medical School at UTHealth stated that 3D mapping provided by the technology of augmented reality improves understanding of human body anatomy, so complex surgeries could be performed more precisely. Using AR will be like GPS for surgeons, helping them to make minimally invasive operations, which will reduce the risk to patients and provide better results.AR and mapping technology was used to perform “Revision image-guided functional endoscopic sinus surgery for treatment of recurrent chronic rhinosinusitis.” Stryker’s Scopis Target Guided Surgery (TGS) solution was used. It creates an overlay and puts it onto the endoscopic picture of the view of the surgeon. This tactic guides the surgeon to lead the predefined path avoiding potentially risky areas.Furthermore, this system allows video recording, which will be beneficial for the training of medical students and that will eventually benefit patients.
