The emergence of the Extended Realities (XR) in medicine has resulted in a proliferation of applications spanning from education to procedural use. Advances in augmented reality (AR) technology, which allows the user to have meaningful interactions with both their native environment and with digital, or holographic images, is making a significant impact in the medical field by improving physician visualization and control. Given this expanding role, there are a critical set of design challenges that should be considered and addressed moving forward.
