Bangor University's Virtual Learning iPad app to help train future neurosurgeons

 

A new mobile ‘app’, downloadable free of charge, will assist with the training of future neurosurgeons, and is just one of a stream of programmes being developed, adapting visual computing and three dimensional realities to provide cost-effective virtual learning for a range of medical procedures.

The ‘VCath’ has been developed by the Advanced Medical Imaging and Visualization Unit at Bangor University’s School of Computer Science, in collaboration with Mr Nick Phillips, Consultant Neurosurgeon at Leeds General Infirmary, and Prof William Gray, Professor of Functional Neurosurgery, Institute of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences, Cardiff University.
