VRvisu Lets Doctors Study Patient’s Tumors In VR

UploadVR

It’s VR to the rescue yet again, as a new app built by a University of North Florida student could dramatically improve cancer treatment. VRvisu was created by Jason Smith, who also works as an assistant professor at the university. Using MRI scans, the app recreates a patient’s tumor inside VR at an accurate scale. The doctor is then able to pull on a headset and inspect the tumor in detail, with relevant information appearing in breakout boxes within the virtual space.
