WellTalk ~Improving Surgical Outcomes using AR/VR~

Edmonton is very proud of Chandra Devam and Scott Edgar, founders of Aris MD, who recently received the top prize in the NASA Tech Ignite the Night Pitch!  In keeping with Wellspring Edmonton’s excellent tradition, we are pleased to have Chandra and Scott present our first WellTalk of 2020.

Improving Surgical Outcomes using AR/VR

Augmented and Virtual reality have come a long way in changing how we relate to the world around us.  From video games to the operating room, AR and VR have a lot to offer.

Chandra and Scott will share with you how Aris MD is using virtual and augmented reality to change surgical outcomes and improve physician’s ability to diagnose.  They believe that tools such as AR, VR and AI should be utilized to benefit the health of all.  Their technology is able to do this by visualizing DICOM data from scanners in 3D real-time, so physicians are not only working with a full set of data from scanners, but are also able to view their patients scans in a more natural way.

Chandra and Scott will delve into how this technology is changing the face of medicine as we know it – for the better.  Please join them for this informative and innovative presentation at our first WellTalk of 2020.
