Incubator for Medical Mixed and Extended Reality at Stanford
The goal of medical mixed reality is to improve patient care by projecting patient data (images, measurements, interventional plans) directly onto the patient's body. This technology enables physicians to look inside the patient to see anatomy, function and disease in its actual location, thereby improving diagnosis, disease assessment, treatment planning and procedure guidance. At IMMERS, we aim to bring together researchers and physicians across Stanford and work with industry partners to envision, enable, and enact solutions to real challenges in healthcare. Furthermore, we work to link numerous AR and virtual reality (VR) groups across campus for efficient collaboration.
