Understanding roles of virtual reality in radiology

Philips AI MRI 570x360


Radiology includes a wide range of imaging technologies that use different technologies to capture patients' data. Virtual Reality (VR) is an innovative technology that provides a clear virtual image of a patient. We see the vast potential of VR to provide a positive impact in radiology. Most relevant papers on Virtual reality in Healthcare/Radiology are identified from Scopus, ScienceDirect, Google Scholar and ResearchGate. Paper tries to technologically explore VR and its applications to improve radiological training and learners' participation levels. Paper briefs about Virtual reality and its working process steps for radiology based clinical treatments. Supportive features of virtual reality in the broad radiology domain are discussed diagrammatically. This paper's primary strength is identifying and discussing thirteen significant VR applications in radiology.

VR is an important technology that is viable for healthcare. With the integration of various components and software, it provides a complete virtual display. In the starting years, this technology was for entertainment purposes. Nowadays, this technology is used to visualise the internal structure. The patient's internal or external parts are used to create more integrated interaction, providing a better procedure for guidance. A radiologist can benefit from this technology for trainees' procedural planning, in-process guidance, detection, diagnosis, and education.
