Vantari to trial VR for patient literacy and bring medical imaging to life

Start-up company Vantari VR will begin trialling its virtual reality technology for patient education and literacy early next year, working with Campbelltown Private Hospital in Sydney to test patient understanding of knee injuries during a consultation with their orthopaedic surgeon.

The Sydney-based company, set up by local doctors Vijay Paul and Nishanth Krishnananthan, is also using the technology at Westmead Hospital for procedural training for junior doctors and medical students, and at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where it is being used to render cardiac MRI scans into virtual reality to assist aortic dissection surgery.
