Virtual Reality — Medicine's New Frontier

Like never before, SLUCare surgeons can "stand" inside a patient’s body and see with remarkable 3D detail the operation site before ever lifting a scalpel.  Sound like science fiction? This innovative concept is reality — virtual reality — and the technology was developed here in St. Louis by a team of SLUCare radiologists and members of Saint Louis University’s IT department. The team has created a tool that expands how medicine is taught and practiced.
