“This is an exciting opportunity to work with Singular Health in the area of digital planning for surgical applications,” he said.
“I believe that Scan to Surgery has the potential to revolutionise the interaction between surgeons, planning software and design engineers by incorporating VR and streamlining the segmentation of DICOM data from CT images.”
