Abstract

The extended realities, including virtual, augmented, and mixed realities (VAMR) have recently experienced significant hardware improvement resulting in an expansion in medical applications. These applications can be classified by the target end user (for instance, classifying applications as patient-centric, physician-centric, or both) or by use case (for instance educational, diagnostic tools, therapeutic tools, or some combination). When developing medical applications in VAMR, careful consideration of both the target end user and use case must heavily influence design considerations, particularly methods and tools for interaction and navigation. Medical imaging consists of both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional medical imaging which impacts design, interaction, and navigation. Additionally, medical applications need to comply with regulatory considerations which will also influence interaction and design considerations. In this manuscript, the authors explore these considerations using three VAMR tools being developed for cardiac electrophysiology procedures.
