The University of Twente is currently developing an innovative smartphone technology based on the usage of Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) and augmented reality (AR).
This technology enables medical personnel to reconstruct 3-D body sections quickly, only by holding the smartphone around the area of interest.
This smartphone will display the augmented layers of the 3-D skin surface in order to visualize invisible information for medical personnel.
“We would like to layer the information from the MRI and other vein scans (from sensor devices using laser speckle) and make them visible with augmented reality”, says Dr. Eng. Beril Sirmacek.
