In this paper, we present a fusion algorithm supplemented with appropriate visualization by selecting relevant information from different modalities in mixed and augmented reality (AR). This encompasses a learning based method upon relevance of information, defined by an expert, which ultimately enables confident interventional decisions based on mixed reality (MR) images. The performance of our developed fusion and tailored visualization techniques was evaluated by employing X-ray/optical images during surgery and validated qualitatively using a 5-point Likert scale. Our observations indicated that the proposed technique provided semantic contextual information about underlying pixels and in general was preferred over the traditional pixel-wise linear alpha-blending method.
