“Visualizing Medicine: Virtual Reality and Innovation for Research and Clinical Practice”
Samantha Bond, MS, CMIBiomedical visualization — a field including medical illustration, animation, data visualization, and even game development
aims to provide clear visual understanding of specific scientific and medical content. Buzzword technologies like Virtual Reality have shown potential for creating meaningful learning experiences and visualizing complex or abstract medical
content. But how applicable are these interventions, and how can researchers gain access to these tools without costly or time-intensive training?
