ePlus inc. recently announced its partnership with Intel and Surgical Theater. Together with its partners, ePlus will assist customers to bridge the knowledge gap between doctors and patients with Surgical Theater's Precision VR technology.
Powered by Intel Core i7 processors, the solution combines F-16 flight simulation technology with 360 degree Virtual Realty to bring conventional medical imaging to life. Its Precision VR Engage visualization platform helps doctors educate patients and their families—giving them a "fly through" leading to a clearer understanding of the diagnosis, prognosis, surgical plan and potential risks/benefits. The result is greater comfort and trust, and increased patient engagement, which translates into decreased patient migration, greater surgical conversion and improved patient satisfaction.
On the surgical side, the Surgical Navigation Advanced Platform (SNAP) helps with the way delicate and highly-complex surgical procedures are performed. Creating the surgical plan with the patient-specific 360VR models allows surgeons to leverage SNAP's real-time VR guidance while operating. SNAP's detailed imaging may also result in increasingly precise surgical procedures, potentially protecting the anatomy while optimizing patient outcomes and recovery times.
