While once viewed as nothing more than science fiction, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies are now commonly used in a variety of industries, including healthcare. From small private medical practices to large hospitals and medical research facilities, countless medical professionals now use these technologies as part of their normal operations.
What's the difference between AR and VR exactly? VR is a type of technology that creates a completely virtual environment without any real-world elements. In comparison, AR is a type of technology that creates a virtual environment with a combination of both real-world and artificial elements. If you wear a VR headset, for example, you won't see any elements that are present in your actual surroundings. If you wear an AR headset, on the other hand, you may see some or all of your actual real-world surroundings.

Both AR and VR are used extensively in the healthcare industry. AR, however, is particularly valuable because it allows medical professionals to see some or all of their real-world surroundings. A surgeon, for example, may use an AR headset to see where he or she needs to make an incision on a patient's body. The AR headset will still show the surgeon's surroundings, but it will add virtual elements like the point of incision to assist the surgeon in the operation. This is just one of many potential uses for AR in the healthcare industry. There are dozens of other uses for both AR and VR in the healthcare industry.
