NUS Medicine to introduce holographic GI module

The Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore (NUS Medicine) has tied up with GigXR, a California-based provider of holographic healthcare training, to introduce a new mixed reality-based (MR) training module for treating and diagnosing acute gastrointestinal diseases.

GigXR’s HoloScenarios: Gastrointestinal module on the Gig Immersive Learning Platform presents a holographic simulation of a clinical setting featuring patients, medical equipment, instructors, and learners. It will deliver simulated scenarios across gastrointestinal pathologies, including gastrointestinal bleeding, intestinal obstruction, and chronic liver failure, among complex and potentially critical situations. 

The module, which is set to be launched next year, was created in collaboration with NUS Medicine GI surgery and holographic medical training specialists. Since last year, NUS Medicine has been using holographic technology to supplement medical learning as part of Project Polaris with Microsoft.
