  1. Editorial : Virtual reality and gastrointestinal endoscopy, or, is virtual vision a speed bump on the road to telepresence ?

    Article - En anglais

    Consisting of a 1-inch liquid crystal display screen and earphones incorporated into a modified pair of sunglasses, Virtual Vision appears to be the ultimate manna to the technophile and couch potato alike.

    Thus, it can be used to watch a « soap » or one's own upper endoscopy.

    Or, it could be used by the endoscopist who has grown weary of pivoting around an external video monitor.

    Although it has the potential to act as a patient distractant, thereby decreasing or eliminating sedation, substituting an « internal environment » for a conventional video monitor is premature with current technology.
