""UC San Francisco's Dr. Pierre Theodore has become the first sanctioned Google Glass-wearing surgeon to receive the approval of an institutional review board — an ethical body convened to review medical research on humans. Theodore, a cardiothoracic surgeon, uploads CT and X-ray images into his Google Glass prior to an operation. He can then check these images, which are relegated to his peripheral vision, as needed, without even moving his head. "It allows you to not lose your concentration directly with the patient," he says in a UCSF-produced video."
