Enhance Your View

Transform your surgical planning workflows, medical scans, and residency training programs into 3D by utilizing Medical Mixed Reality technology.

All features and descriptions below are intended for clinical use in the EU and Singapore.

"When we look at a CT Scan, MRI or even X-Ray, it is flat. We only see those images in one dimension, but we can not really imagine it. And it is not how our brain works. A 3D model takes that flatness and gives it context, gives it life."

Use Cases

Our surgeons across 13+ different medical fields leverage the VSI HoloMedicine® platform to collaborate with other physicians globally as virtual avatars, conduct surgical planning in 3D, engage patients, and drive residency training programs. All of this is just the beginning however. VSI HoloMedicine® is building a suite of next generation medical applications that serves to be the foundational platform for mixed reality-based medicine and disrupt legacy medical equipment.

01. Surgical Planning

The VSI HoloMedicine® platform first constructs a 3D image based on real world patient DICOM scans. Physicians can then view this data in volumetric 3D via the Microsoft HoloLens 2 head-mounted display (HMD) to create a fully immersive experience. Surgeons are then enabled to view patient information and plan complex medical procedures all in mixed reality. apoQlar’s solution is currently used in over 13 different medical fields with ever increasing use cases around the world.

02. Patient Education

Engage and educate patients by walking them through a 3D model of their unique anatomy and upcoming procedure. By showing very complex procedures and anatomy in a more digestible format, physician are able to improve patient comprehension, reduce procedure anxiety, and increase patient satisfaction.

03. Remote Medical Consultation

Collaborate with leading physicians in 3D mixed reality – whether that’s across the hospital campus or the globe. VSI HoloMedicine® connects the global medical community via avatars in the Medical Metaverse or Microsoft Teams tele-consult capabilities.

04. Residency Training Programs

Provide medical students, residents, and fellows an experiential, collaborative learning environment powered by next-generation mixed reality technology. Deploy VSI HoloMedicine® in simulation labs, individual residency programs, or across the hospital & education system.

05. Proctoring

Procedures involving medical implants, unique medical devices, and complex methodologies require the support of industry specialists to ensure optimal outcomes. VSI HoloMedicine® allows physicians to virtually scrub in and provide step by step guidance remotely.

06. Virtual Tumor Boards

Doctor Story

Engaging Patient Education

Meet Rosemaylee, a 13-year-old girl from Haiti, arrived in the United States with her family in 2018. When she visited the children's hospital in Miami, Florida, she was diagnosed with a rare and complex defect involving three separate structures in her heart that required immediate surgical intervention.

With the help of our VSI HoloMedicine® software platform and Microsoft HoloLens 2, Rosemaylee was able to better understand her predicament and was comforted knowing the surgeons had a 3D view of her unique case, why she needed the medical procedure, and how the doctors were going to help.

"The amount of information I can gather from multiple images that have different parts of the heart present or absent is profoundly useful."

Experience The Medical Metaverse

Mixed Reality (MR) is a truly disruptive technology that is shaping an entirely new market in healthcare. With MR, we are no longer bound to physical objects in a physical world. We are now able to leverage digital objects and services on top of the real world for equal or greater utility and at a fraction of the cost. MR is a completely new way for people, and in our case surgeons, professors and students, to continue to experience the real world around them but with an entire virtual world/layer laid on top. The opportunities are truly limitless as one can continue to leverage the exponential growth of technology as a superimposed digital layer while also experiencing the undeniable value of the real world around us.

Doctor story

Remote Medical Consultation

A surgical intervention was performed in unison between Prof. Dr. Kevin Cassar from the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Malta and surgeon Dr. Igor Koncar from Belgrade, Serbia using VSI HoloMedicine® and HoloLens to communicate in real time.

In this scenario the patient was suffering from a condition called an abdominal aortic aneurysm where the main artery in the abdomen increases in size with the risk of rupture and risk of death. The procedure, referred to as a Chimney Endovascular aneurysm repair, was completed successfully with the collaboration of the two teams working together in real time but in different countries. The patient was discharged home the following day.
