This system consists of a custom video-see-through head-mounted display (HMD), two color video cameras attached to the HMD that provide ultrasound, magnetic resonance (MR), or computer tomography (CT) pre-recorded images, and a third infrared video camera for tracking what's doing the surgeon.
Such systems could become available in three to five years. But they will not be cheap. A complete augmented reality system should cost as much as $400,000. This overview contains other details, references and illustrations of some Siemens technologies that will make patients appear transparent.
