Talk Title: Perception-centered development of AR/VR displays


Marina is a vision scientist in the Display Systems Research group at Facebook Reality Labs. Prior to joining Facebook, she spent a few years in Berkeley studying how the optics or our eyes determine how we recover the three-dimensional structure of our visual environment. Now, she applies her knowledge of the human visual system to optimize the design of mixed reality technology.

Talk Title: An update on the medical display landscape

I will describe recent topics in medical displays including the use of handheld and mixed-reality approaches for better integration of imaging into medical practice. I will also highlight emerging trends and challenges including convergence and interoperability towards more efficient, more consistent, and more user-friendly visualizations, particularly in the area of diagnostic imaging.

Aldo Badano holds a Senior Biomedical Researcher Service appointment at FDA and currently serves as Deputy Director of the Division of Imaging, Diagnostics, and Software Reliability, Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, U.S. FDA.
