Case, Cleveland Clinic Lead Adoption of Augmented Reality as a Teaching Tool
As a leader in healthcare and medical innovations, Northeast Ohio institutions are at the forefront of a new technology that is sweeping the medical arena: augmented reality. Unlike virtual reality, which immerses a person in a complete 360-degree virtual environment, augmented reality layers virtual objects and images into the real world via holographs on a screen. While augmented reality is being used across multiple industries, it is making a significant impact in medical circles. As doctors and researchers seek to learn more about how to apply augmented reality to the field of medicine, innovators at Case Western Reserve and the Cleveland Clinic represent two early adopters that are helping lead the charge.
