It has been reported that the University of California-San Francisco has received approval from the Institutional Review Board to use Google’s computerised eyeglasses during surgeries. It is the first approval in the US by the board.
“Pierre Theodore, a cardiothoracic surgeon at UCSF, has performed 10 to 15 surgeries using Google Glass.
The device sends de-identified radiographic images from a secure site. Surgeons then can use the images while performing surgical procedures”.
