GreyMapp – Augmented Reality app for training purposes – Presented by Guido de Jong, Radboudumc – Department of Neurosurgery

Neuroanatomy is a complicated subject for students, scientists and physicians which could benefit from modern three dimensional (3D) applications. One of these applications is called GreyMapp, which provides a detailed overview of the 3D anatomy of the human brain by integrating non-augmented- and augmented reality (non-AR and AR respectively).

Using GreyMapp was found to lead to a proper understanding of 3D neuroanatomy without exerting a disproportional amount of cognitive load. The cognitive load theory assumes that the human cognitive system has a limited working memory which should not be exceeded. Generally, cognitive load is divided into three categories: intrinsic, extraneous and germane cognitive load and each subset is suggested to be affected by non-AR- and AR-features. Research showed that cross-sectional learning was negatively impacted by use of GreyMapp. Continue reading “GreyMapp – Augmented Reality app for training purposes – Presented by Guido de Jong, Radboudumc – Department of Neurosurgery”

“Added value of 3D Imaging and 3D printing in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery” – Presented by Dr. Thomas Maal, RadboudUMC

In 2006 a 3D Lab was setup at the Radboud University Medical Centre in order to facilitate the implementation of technical innovations in 3D imaging and 3D Printing into daily clinical practice. The general goal is to improve patient care and provide patient specific solutions.Especially the close cooperation between surgeons and engineers within the 3D Lab lead to fast implementation of new technology in a wide range clinical applications. This presentation will illustrate a number of clinical examples and will focus on the added value of 3D imaging and 3D printing in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery.
