Doctors use Google Glass in a cancer surgery | medical technology | Scoop.it

Google Glass, the futuristic marvel developed by Google X released in February last year is apparently suited to the need of specialized users such as surgeons. Two physicians at Indiana University Health

Methodist Hospital Dr. Szotek and Dr. Jeff Browne have become the first to use Google’s wearable technology during their four-hour abdominal surgery procedure. Both the doctors used this miniature head-mounted computer to access the patient’s medical records and more as they removed out a tumor. Glass is controlled over voice activated menus and neither had to worry about any chances of infection
