The afternoon keynote presentation is by Rolf Ewers, from the Medical University of Vienna, on the use of augmented reality and telenavigation in surgery. Augmented reality is not about simulating reality (as in Second Life, etc), but about adding on information to real life situations. The first generation uses, for example, data from CT scans to assist the use of clinical tools. Using these tools, can plan operations in advance, but also evaluate afterwards how precise the surgery was in relation to the planning. Second generation telenavigation tools and techniques are helping with keyhole surgery. His team are also using telemedicine tools for teleconsultation and to teach the techniques to clinicians in other parts of the country and internationally.
