Enter the terms you wish to search for. The trial will communication with young children on pediatric gastrointestinal patients.

It will let the children take a peak into their GI track and see exactly what doctors are doing during a procedure. The goal is to make it easier for doctors to explain what is happening during a procedure and in turn increase patient engagement, according to a statement. There is a ton of information that needs to be communicated and it is technical. The patient might try to explain what they have, but they don’t have the medical training to and the physician might try to explain to the patient, what they found but don’t have the right words.

Currently, doctors will print out a report of the procedure and then try to explain what is happening using the printout. Usually these are largely text-based, and don’t have a lot of visuals. The VR will be a post-procedure experience,  Docktor said. The system lets doctors put clinical findings from the patient’s endoscopy or colonoscopy into a proprietary web interface that will customize the upper and lower GI track. Then doctors can use the drag-and-drop feature to show polyps, ulcers, bleeding, and other conditions. The doctor can then generate a patient report which will transfer the findings into a 3D VR experience. The system will also generate a PDF report with a QR code to share with patients and families.
