For the second time in as many months, the NY Times has highlighted the pioneering work of UCSF cardiothoracic surgeon Pierre Theodore M.D. in introducing Google Glass into the operating room. Dr. Theodore "calls wearable computers "a game changer." "In surgery, Google Glass is incredibly illuminating," said Dr. Theodore, who uses Glass to float X-rays and CT scans in his field of view at the operating table. "It helps you pinpoint what you're looking for, so you don't have to shift your attention away from the operation to look at a monitor somewhere else." Theodore's trailblazing work was also the subject of an extensive story in UCSF News earlier this year.
