Virtual and Augmented Reality are being used in some of the following ways in the medical field:
  1. Medical Practice: These technologies allow surgeons to practice virtually using 3D visualizations of the patient's CT/MRI scans, thus allowing for a more customized experience. They are also being used to aid exposure therapy in people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and phobias.
  2. Medical Education: Students can learn about anatomy and molecular biology by immersing themselves in virtual environments.
