The Stanford Virtual Heart: using virtual reality for 21st century healthcare education.

For this medical event we invited Dr. David Axelrod from Stanford university to teach us about his work. 

Virtual Reality can provide an immersive and interactive educational environment. Collaborating with software engineers from the gaming industry and complex scientific concepts from medicine, Stanford University and Lighthaus have created the Stanford Virtual Heart. This VR experience educates trainees and students in congenital heart disease, while also providing an environment for patients and families to understand the human heart. Dr. David Axelrod is a pediatric cardiologist, and he will share the story of the development of the Stanford Virtual Heart, the exciting advances using VR in medicine, and the future possibilities for VR and AR in healthcare and science education.

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
Jaron Lanier, 1992
