Medivis Launches SurgicalAR Augmented Reality Platform

Platform fuses medical imaging data in holographic overlays to increase surgical precision

Medivis Launches SurgicalAR Augmented Reality Platform

February 14, 2019 — Medical imaging and visualization company Medivis officially unveiled SurgicalAR, its augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications, at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual meeting, Feb. 11-15 in Orlando, Fla.

Leveraging Microsoft HoloLens, SurgicalAR enables physicians to overlay images directly onto the patient, allowing for superior precision and real-time decision making — in and out of the operating room. With SurgicalAR, physicians can now further mitigate surgical complications and ensure patient safety. The company is also announcing it has closed a $2.3 million seed round led by Initialized Capital.

Medivis CEO Osamah Choudhry, M.D., noted how surgeons today still rely on 2-D images to display patient data, requiring practitioners to turn their visual attention away from the patient. He added that they are forced to use their imagination to mentally fuse and display data in order to accurately plan and perform surgery with precision, which he called difficult and inefficient.

With SurgicalAR, surgeons can:

  • Improve Surgical Accuracy: True depth perception enhances visuospatial understanding, which considerably improves surgical planning and performance;
  • Make Better Decisions, Faster: AR brings raw imaging data to life in a hands-free spatial environment, making accurate, real-time decision making possible; and
  • Improve Patient Outcome & Safety: Holographic overlays increase surgical precision and reduce time spent in the operating room.

Medivis was purpose built for enterprise-level healthcare organizations. The platform works seamlessly with any legacy infrastructure, and enables surgeons to directly sync and integrate with hospital picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in record time.
