Practice English Speaking&Listening with: HoloLens Radiology Trial

Difficulty: 0

I'm delighted to work with the Digital Learning Hub team at Imperial College to

provide hololens augmented reality simulation training for the first time

actually in the world in this particular field in this particular setting as far

as we know.

Today we have invited junior trainees to have simulation course and

the core IR or interventional radiology skills.

They are practicing guiding biopsy needles and reneges

into target lesions.

The simulation they are working on is constructed

from real patient CT and they are using real needles and

ablation devices.

The hololens simulation provides us not only with a correct

imaging placement but also with the tactile feedback all done within this

augmented reality. It's very fascinating.

The field of interventional radiology is expanding

not only in terms of the number of procedures but also in the

complexity of the procedures. This sort of digital learning technology will help

them to provide the services at much higher technical ability and safety.

It is very interesting to watch the trainees and the trainers today.

Everybody is so excited and so engaged in it which I think it shows another

dimension of it that you are training people in a very friendly and attractive atmosphere.
