Sarasota (Fla.) Memorial Hospital added Augmedics' Xvision spine system, according to a Sept. 6 news release.
Xvision uses a headset and augmented reality to help surgeons see a patient's anatomy during procedures. It's designed to increase precision and efficiency.
"This 3D-projected image of the vertebra shows you in real time what the anatomy is and takes any uncertainty out of the procedure," Ngoc Nguyen, MD, a spine surgeon at SMH, said in the release. "You know exactly where you’re placing every screw."
