Patient saftey starts prior to surgery namely during the planing phase. The aim of virtual and augmented reality is to simulate surgery and complex anatomical structures prior to surgery, with the goal to reduce intraoperative complications. Furthermore it has a strong impact on education and learning curve on trainees. Using the Specto-VR software developed at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Basel, the 3D data acquired during standard patient imaging (MRI, CT, PET CT) can be integrated into a virtual reality HTC Vive glasses. These data can even be shared and discussed online with neurosurgical peers resulting in an optimal surgical plan.
