Are holograms the future of medicine? 全像攝影是醫學教學的未來嗎?

747

醫科學生們在利用全像攝影學習新技能,這在世界上尚屬首次,他們能夠使用擴增實境頭盔裝置治療並與逼真的虛擬患者互動,而不用擔心出錯。

In what’s being claimed as a world first by the people involved, medical students in Cambridge are using holograms to better prepare themselves for real-life situations.

劍橋的一些醫科學生們正在利用全像攝影更好地為應對現實中的場景做準備,相關人士將這一培訓稱為世界首例。

It’s called mixed-reality training. The students wear headsets, which not only allow them to interact with each other, but with multi-layered medically accurate holographic patients. Several scenarios are available, including dealing with people suffering from asthma, anaphylaxis, and pneumonia.

這叫作混合實境培訓,學生們戴著頭盔裝置,不僅可以相互交流,還可以與多個解剖疊層組成的、醫學構造精確的全像患者互動,有幾種場景可供學生選擇,包括診療患有哮喘、過敏性反應和肺炎的病人。

The developers say their work could provide a more flexible, cost-effective way of training that would be accessible around the world.

開發人員表示,他們的研發成果可提供一種更靈活、更具成本效益的培訓方式,在世界各地均可使用。
