The NUHS has embarked on a research & development programme within the academic healthcare cluster to explore the use of 'Mixed Reality' technology in clinical care. The research programme hopes to support the development of next-generation clinical applications and improve patient safety. This would augment clinical processes, and enhance both undergraduate and postgraduate education. As part of the first phase of the programme, a team of neurosurgeons at NUH has initiated a study to assess the feasibility of using holographic technology to spatially locate brain tumours when operating on patients.
