Virtual Reality in Healthcare in the U.S.

The use of virtual reality (VR) technologies in the U.S. healthcare industry has expanded tremendously due to extensive product development and the growing implementation of healthcare information technology (HIT) infrastructure. Virtual reality applications in the healthcare industry are associated with many leading areas of medical technology innovation including robot-assisted surgery, augmented reality (AR) surgery, computer-assisted surgery (CAS), image-guided surgery (IGS), surgical navigation, multi-modality image fusion, medical imaging 3D/4D reconstruction, pre-operative surgical planning, virtual colonoscopy, virtual surgical simulation, virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET), and VR physical rehabilitation and motor skills training. The clinical and enterprise benefits of healthcare VR technology are numerous and include improved patient outcomes, reduced medical errors, improved minimally-invasive surgical (MIS) technique, improved physician collaboration in diagnosis, and improved psychological and motor rehabilitation.
