State of the Art of Mixed Reality in Medicine

Speaker:  Nigel W John – Chester, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Mixed Reality (MR) is of increasing interest within technology- driven modern medicine but is not yet used in everyday practice. This situation is changing rapidly, however, and this talk explores the emergence of MR technology and the importance of its utility within medical applications. We use a classification of medical MR that has been obtained by applying an unbiased text mining method to a database of over 1,400 relevant research papers published over the last two decades. The classification results reveal a taxonomy for the development of medical MR research during this period as well as suggesting future trends. We then use the classification to analyse the technology and applications developed in the last five years. Our objective is to aid researchers to focus on the areas where technology advancements in medical MR are most needed, as well as providing medical practitioners with a useful source of reference.
