Overview: Mixed reality technology is advancing rapidly, to the point that an ever increasing number of medical applications will soon be feasible. The ability to upload and render 3D image data that is aligned to patients is particularly attractive, and when combined with tool tracking and rendering, offers even more options. Examples in breast surgery, needle guidance and orthopedic surgery will be presented. These approaches use different types of marker-based and intelligent device tracking, integrated with mixed reality devices and appropriate user interfaces for real-time operation in patient settings including operating rooms.
