In this hands-on lab course, you focus on specific diseases and follow the diagnosis and treatment pathway of a patient. Learn about relevant anatomy and physiology by using virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) alongside traditional approaches. Learn about the ever-growing field of medical imaging and how methods such as X-ray, CT, MR, and ultrasound are becoming an increasing part of medical diagnostics and treatment. You gain a clear idea of how certain interventions and surgical procedures are executed through the use of medical simulators or VR.
