Augmented reality (AR) blends elements from the real world with the virtual ones by overlaying computer-generated content on top of a live user environment. The global AR in the healthcare market is expected to generate $1.918.6 million by 2026. AR aggregates health-related information, such as patients’ medical records, and projects all this as a virtual component for the doctor to view while examining a patient in real-time. The first-ever augmented reality-assisted surgery took place in February 2020 at Policlinico Universitario.
