Special Issue "Extended Reality in Medicine and Healthcare: Methods, Technologies, Applications and Future Trends"
Extended Reality (XR), a term that encompasses virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, has the potential to revolutionize healthcare and medicine. From training healthcare professionals to enhancing patient care, XR can offer new ways to learn, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate patients. As the technology continues to improve and become more accessible, the healthcare industry must explore its potential and address its challenges.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and experts to share their latest findings, insights, and experiences in using XR for healthcare and medicine. We invite original research articles, reviews, case studies, and perspectives that cover, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- XR applications in medical education and training, such as simulators, games, and immersive experiences.
- XR-based diagnostic and therapeutic tools, such as visualization, imaging, and surgery.
- XR-enabled patient care, such as telemedicine, remote monitoring, and rehabilitation.
- XR ethics, safety, and user experience in healthcare and medicine.
- XR challenges and opportunities in healthcare policy, regulations, and economics.
- XR technological innovations concerning head-mounted displays, tracking systems, and projectors.
This Special Issue addresses interactive technologies and systems, such as head-mounted displays, that can be employed for extended reality applications in medicine and health. Such topics comply with the scope of Sensors, including “Sensor technology and application”, “Human–computer Interaction”, “Vision/camera based sensors”, and “Sensing and imaging”.
