Surgeon uses Google Glass to record and broadcast operation live online and view x-rays and MRIs simultaneously.
A surgeon has successfully used Google Glass to help perform foot and ankle surgery, which was broadcasted live on the Internet. The surgery was performed during a three day annual Indo-US conference. Dr Selene G. Parekh performed the surgery on Saturday, and found Google Glass to be an interesting tool in the medical field.
Dr. Parekh told CBR that he believes Google Glass will “allow surgeons to collaborate, educate, and teach more easily. I think it will improve outcomes and patient success.”
