Philips presents live 3D holographic imaging

Philips enables doctors to perform heart procedures using a floating 3D holographic image.

Tomorrow, Philips and the Israeli company RealView are going to present the results of this unique pilot study at a symposium in San Francisco.

Today, X-ray and cardiac ultrasound images are displayed on a 2D screen during surgery. Philips’ innovative technology is going to help doctors to visualize the patient’s heart ‘floating in free space’. Not only can he visualize it, he can also touch and turn the heart and apply markings on the image to guide him during the procedure.

Philips states the live 3D holographic imaging’s potential will simplify complex heart disease procedures and might also be used in other clinical areas in the future.
