Matt Witkamp has seen the future of AR-assisted surgery and medical training. In fact his team at Citizen Inc., in partnership with Stanford Medicine and Microsoft, have literally invented it.
Project Serra is a Hololens application that allows surgeons to see real 3D MRI visualizations directly a-top of patients on the operating table, helping to more precisely locate and extract life-threatening tumors.
In today’s show, we discuss the origins of Project Serra, Citizen’s role in guiding the user experience, and how it’s use in live surgery and training simulations will help to reduce repeat surgeries and improve cosmetic outcomes for breast cancer patients.
