Future Technology May Project Desired Results on the Face

Recent research performed by Koichi Ueda, M.D., PhD, Daisuke Mitsuno, M.D., and colleagues have revealed that “augmented reality” may be useful for the future of surgical procedures as well as the teaching of surgical skills. This research group created 3D simulations of the desired results, which were then projected onto the faces of the patients to provide a completely new way to visualize how they would look post-op. The Research “Augmented reality is a technology that combines...
