The Augmented Reality (AR) Program

The Augmented Reality (AR) Program at UHN and TECHNA is focused on the development of AR technologies and applications to enable image-guidance with the improved spatial context in planning, education, review, and intervention. This contrasts traditional displays for image guidance where visualizations of virtual models are rendered on a separate display away from the operating field.

The AR system is able to provide real-time feedback metrics based on quantitative planning in procedures not found in commercial systems, such as guided osteotomies and out-of-plane ultrasound-guided ablations. Multi-client connectivity also enables multiple users to collaborate, either in the same physical space or remotely.
