On the cutting edge of medicine, robot-assisted and image-guided surgery are slowly becoming more and more common for minimally invasive procedures.
Therapixel, leveraging VMware and OVH Cloud, helps to streamline the 3D image reconstructions of patients’ bodies thanks to a highly responsive and reliable server. These images are available for review in the surgery via large screens and hand-gesture controls, informing surgeons’ decisions.
While this is largely used for training purposes, there are numerous advantages to both doctors and patients: doctors get a view inside the patient’s’ body before operating, removing any element of surprise; while patients can enjoy peace of mind that a highly complex and technical procedure is now more streamlined.
There are many leaps forward that this technology can bring in the future.
