Modern surgeons have at their disposal a vast array of advanced technological data dissemination devices. The ring of high resolution monitors circling the typical operating area to display pre-operative and real-time patient data is esteemly supportive. The drawback, however, is that such displays require the surgeons to frequently shift their head and gaze away from the principle field of interest. We describe a new display technique that provides surgeons with a lightweight, wearable display surface that permits localization of medical data of main interest near the field of operation with minimal head and gaze movements.
