Medical Augmented Reality: coming soon to (operating) theaters near you | Nassir Navab
Why is it that we have all the information we need at our fingertips, but the surgeon operating on us is limited to using their human senses? Nassir Navab's mission is to introduce Augmented Reality into the surgery room, so that surgeons can see relevant data such as X-Ray or MRI as part of their reality on the operating table. This eye-opening talk includes an interesting live demo and shows us cutting-edge technology for the surgery of the future.
About Nassir Navab
Nassir Navab ended his actual TEDx presentation by thanking his students and clinical partners and in particular, Christoph Bichlmeier, Tobias Blum, Sandro Heining, Ekkehard Euler, Joerg Traub, Oliver Kutter, Tobias Sielhorst, Felix Wimmer, Thomas Wendler, Pascal Fallavollita, Lejing Wang, Simon Weidert, Meng Ma, Severine Habert, Benoit Diotte, Olivier Pauly, and Felix Bork.
Nassir Navab chose to study computer engineering because he had a better knowledge of all other classical choices he had at that time. He is combining Augmented Reality to medicine to design and build the surgery of the future. He believes that augmented humans will be able to see like an eagle, hear all frequencies like a wax moth, smell like a bear and have the haptic sensibility of a manatee.
