From the discovery of x-rays in 1895 to the utilization of ultrasound, MRI, and CT scanners in the 1960s and 70s, health care has long depended on imaging to provide the best quality diagnostics and care for patients. Now, as new forms of imaging such as virtual reality and augmented reality hit the scene, researchers including Jayender Jagadeesan, PhD, of the Surgical Planning Lab in the Radiology Department at BWH, look to bring these imaging techniques into the operating room. As the most immersive type of imaging, virtual reality (VR) takes the user into a
