Abstract

The metaverse is a virtual space that uses Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capable of recreating a world parallel to reality, in the health sciences the use of technologies during the last decade has increased dramatically and the benefits for both patients and professionals are countless. After the implementation of quarantine by COVID-19, social isolation led to the emergence of new tools that made health sciences become even more involved in this digital world. The applications of the metaverse in medicine range from data processing, the simulation of environments for the exchange between groups of patients, to the simulation of surgical procedures, diagnostic and experimental processes and the simulation of avatars of doctors or nurses capable of advising patients according to their clinical conditions.
