DC7: Augmented reality framework for visualizing airborne infectious pathogens in the operating room during surgery

Objectives: to develop augmented reality platform for visualizing dynamic volumetric data such as airborne contaminants based on a grid of point-wise measurements.

Expected Results: Increased awareness among medical personnel related to airborne particle contamination; A visualization framework for augmented and virtual reality devices that can visualize a complex 3D fields and merge it with the content of the operating room in a ubiquitous way; A 3D volumetric display method that will fuse multi-point measurements and display data at several 3D locations synchronously (e.g. surgical wound and instrument table; A tool to record the view from the operating room together with the measured data, that can be used later for training purposes will be implemented.
