By staff writers

February 25, 2019 -- Royal Philips, parent company of Philips Healthcare, is highlighting at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, a collaboration with Microsoft that will combine Philips' Azurion image-guided therapy platform with Microsoft's HoloLens 2 augmented reality (AR) computing platform.

Microsoft unveiled HoloLens 2 on February 24 at MWC, according to Philips.

The collaboration will meld live imaging and other sources of data that currently must be displayed on 2D screens into a 3D holographic AR environment that can be easily and intuitively controlled by the operating room physician, Philips said.
