VR/Mixed RealityMixed Reality

Participate in the future framework of education. Experience the cutting-edge development from CHEST with EBUS Mixed Reality.

CHEST has created a 15-step Mixed Reality procedural guide based on the virtual reality game on learning how to use endobronchial ultrasound guided-transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). Harness the power of Mixed Reality and learn the 15 steps of EBUS procedure. No longer will you be constrained to lectures and videos for learning. Learn through gamification with Mixed Reality and gain three-dimensional and tactile feedback in a more engaging experience, powered through an iPhone.

EBUS Mixed Reality is available Monday – Wednesday from 10-11:00 am.

Your Snooze, You Win (Sleep Study Game)
