Potential of AR
Medical illustration has a distinguished history, from the first engravings of the 17th century up until the present day. Medical imaging technology, like the x-ray and ultrasound, has also made a lasting contribution to the development of advanced visualization systems for depicting medical information. Modern methods can incorporate the schematic representations from the illustrative tradition, in the form of 3D computer modeling and animation, and footage derived directly from the patient, in the form of endoscopy and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI data. As a critical part of the next generation of visualization and interface design, augmented reality has the potential to recalibrate our expectation of what's possible, both in the way we display medical data, and the methods we use to interact with it. DDA is an award-winning developer of mobile software applications for the healthcare industry, and we are excited about the potential of AR development for our clients, our future clients, and their prospective audience.
Augmented reality is about to make a major contribution to the way we use technology to access and process medical information. AR applications can be accessed through any type of mobile device, including smartphones, tablets, or other hands-free options. The interface uses the device's camera lens to create the backdrop, then layers in 3D graphics, often animated. Information can be delivered in a variety of forms, including static images, text based instructions, 3D avatars that guide or instruct within the real-world context, instructional diagrams that are presented interactively in coordination with real-world objects, and more. With augmented reality apps, you can manipulate virtual objects in a real setting, and real objects in a virtual setting. Both options can feature photorealistic graphics with fully rendered shadows, reflections, and other effects delivered in real time. Augmented reality has the flexibility and the inclusivity to fold in nearly any type of data and incorporate it into an application that serves a vital function for its purpose. Whether the target audience is intended to be surgeons, doctors, nurses, clinicians, therapists, interns, students, or patients, healthcare is ready for augmented reality application development.
As leading developers of custom software for the medical industry, DDA has extensive experience with the implementation of innovative and cutting-edge ideas. DDA's vertically integrated studio, composed of full-time, degree-holding professionals employing the latest technology and the most advanced production methods, works closely with our clients to achieve their core goals and exceed their expectations.
