Abstract
Multimodal imaging, including augmented or mixed reality, transforms the physicians’ interaction with clinical imaging, allowing more accurate data interpretation, better spatial resolution, and depth perception of the patient’s anatomy. We successfully overlay 3D holographic visualization to magnetic resonance imaging images for preoperative decision making of a complex case of cardiac tumour in a 7-year-old girl.
