Abstract

One key to the success of a user interface that includes AR visualization is its ability to automatically recognize different phases of a workflow, which each require various levels of augmentation. It is also important for the AR system to be transparent to the user during the rest of the procedure. These issues have greater importance when dealing with computer-aided surgery applications. In most of these applications, a surgeon needs augmentation for only quite brief periods, such as choosing the ports for a laparoscopic intervention or localizing the major arteries before starting a liver resection. These augmentations, however, can play an important role in the overall procedure's success. During the past three years, the authors have tried to develop such integrated AR solutions in the context of minimally invasive surgery. In this article, they discuss their activities and recent results.
