Immersive Reality…Aris MD uses a patent-pending Augmented and Virtual Reality system to help bring medicine into the 21st century.
Aris MD an immersive reality company using virtual and augmented reality technology to enhance surgery, avoid complications, and save lives. They are using diagnostic images (MRI, CT, Xray, Ultrasound) and overlaying them over the patient, during surgery. This gives the surgeon a guided map of the patients anatomy and pathology or injury. This shows the surgeon where not to cut and, more importantly, where to cut.
Every person’s anatomy differs on the outside and the inside. My heart and liver are not located exactly where your heart and liver are located. The surgeon has a general idea of where your main organs and arteries are, but not exactly. This leads to complications and avoidable death. With the Aris MD immersive reality map, they know exactly where they are going by looking at you. This saves time the patient spends in the OR under anesthetic, and saves lives.
The Aris MD Immersive Reality System allows…
The Aris MD immersive reality system allows the surgeon to practice performing the surgery in virtual space. A doctor has the ability to performed a practice surgery in virtual space as many times as they need to in order to feel confident before they operate. It’s also a great tool for medical students and residents.
The Aris MD immersive reality technology also provides a diagnostic component that radiologists can use before surgery. An MRI, for example, is taken in 3D space and then converted into 2D and viewed in slices. It’s better for physicians to view it in 3D where they can see the true shape and size and depth of a tumor or other pathology.

Episode 40…Chandra Devam and Aris MD Recap
First of All…Aris MD was founded by Chandra and her lifelong friend, child computer prodigy Scott Edgar to help surgeons work more efficiently. So Aris MD uses the combination of Virtual and Augmented Reality.
Virtual reality comes, naturally, from the definitions for both ‘virtual’ and ‘reality’. The definition of ‘virtual’ is near and reality is what we experience as human beings. So the term ‘virtual reality’ basically means ‘near-reality’. This could, of course, mean anything but it usually refers to a specific type of reality emulation.
And Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user’s environment in real time. So unlike virtual reality, which creates a totally artificial environment, augmented reality uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it.
