Medicine is an ever-changing field in which new treatments and diagnostic techniques are introduced constantly. With the increased use of virtual and augmented reality, surgeons have the capacity to "see" into a patient's body before even making a single cut. Medical students can learn the field by practicing risk-free on virtual patients in a 3D environment. Psychiatrists can treat conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder without the increased use of pharmaceuticals. This book explains both virtual and augmented reality while also showcasing the latest, cutting-edge applications of these technologies in the medical field. Readers will also learn how they can pursue a career using these technologies to benefit patients.
