RealView integrates Intel RealSense technology into AR medical system

RealView Imaging has integrated the Intel RealSense SR300-Series camera into its holographic augmented reality (AR) medical system, Holoscope-i.

RealView Imaging has integrated the Intel RealSense SR300-Series camera into its holographic augmented reality (AR) medical system, Holoscope-i.

The medical product is designed to provide live, three-dimensional (3D) holographic visualisation and capabilities for interaction to support procedures involving medical intervention.

Holoscope-i creates spatially accurate, 3D and interactive volumetric holograms using the firm’s Digital Light Shaping technology, while Intel’s computer vision technology enables devices to see, understand, interact and learn from their environments.

The combination of these two technologies is intended to allow close-range and direct manipulation of holograms with full control of the images during a real-time procedure.

"With superior 3D depth-sensing and processing capabilities, RealSense enables the interaction with devices in a meaningful way for actionable insights and new user experiences."

RealView Imaging CEO Aviad Kaufman said: “Since our customers demand millimetre accuracy and very low latency for the interventional procedures, it is crucial for us to provide them with these useful, accurate and fast tools based on the RealSense depth camera, which we found to be the most advanced depth sensing technology out there today.”

The integration of RealView’s interference-based, multi-plane, holographic technology with Intel’s depth-sensing technology facilitates rotating, zooming, slicing, marking and measuring of the floating holograms.

Intel RealSense Group vice-president and general manager Sagi Ben Moshe said: “With superior 3D depth-sensing and processing capabilities, RealSense enables the interaction with devices in a meaningful way for actionable insights and new user experiences.”

RealView Imaging plans to launch the Holoscope-i medical system in the coming months.
