This paper discusses a systematic review of the state of the art on Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) in spinal navigation where early clinical validations have shown promising outlook on accuracy and scalability parameters. The objective of this research is to evaluate clinical relevance for AR-VR enabled spinal surgical technologies and develop an economic feasibility model for stakeholders like a patient; hospitals and research organizations while technology adoption. From the influencing parameters, we identified the research gaps that can be explored going forward and a list of high priority research challenges that could provide attractive research and development investment case for industry players.
