First Liver Surgery Using an iPad in Germany [Photos]
Check out these photos of a liver surgery in Germany which used an iPad to access and visualize planning data. An augmented reality app was used by doctors during surgery to overlay the liver with virtual 3D models reconstructed from the real organ, according to Reuters.

You can see photos taken during the surgery below.
