Abstract: HoloLens Streaming of 3D Data from Ultrasound Systems to Augmented Reality Glasses

Conference paper
Part of the Informatik aktuell book series (INFORMAT)


Two-dimensional ultrasound (US) imaging is one of the most common tools for diagnostic procedures. However, this imaging modality requires highly experienced and skilled operators to mentally reconstruct three-dimensional (3D) anatomy from these images. Additionally, the physician’s gaze is focused on the screen of the US system instead of the probe and patient. In order to overcome these problems, we propose real-time 3D US in combination with augmented reality (AR) glasses (specifically Microsoft HoloLens) to render the volume relative to the US probe [1].
