Inside The Metaverse: 3D Detailed Anatomical Renderings Revolutionizing Health Care

The metaverse is a place where people interact in a virtual space through headset technology. NBC News’ Jake Ward explores the 3D technology allowing three surgeons from opposite sides of the globe to plan an operation together virtually, allowing them to examine detailed renderings of a patient’s brain. Universities like Case Western Reserve are also using this technology as a tool to learn anatomy, replacing the traditional more costly method of cadavers. Not only have researchers found that the software helps medical students learn twice as fast and keep knowledge longer, but it may open this education up to other groups who wouldn’t have had access to this before.
