Computer-Aided Ophthalmic Procedures

Computer-Aided Ophthalmic Procedures

In the current workflow of opthamologic surgeries, the surgeon observes the scene in an indirect way through a microscope while performing the surgery with the necessary high handling precision. During membrane peeling, for example, the surgeon has to grasp an anatomical layer of only 10 μm off the retina without damaging it. However, under this limited microscopic view, it becomes very challenging to infer the distance of the surgical instrument to the retina. Issues such as lens distortion, high level of blurriness and lack of haptic feedback complicate the task further. Recently, an intraoperative version of the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) was introduced, which provides the 3D information along a scanning line. On the one hand, this modality provides depth information during the surgery. On the other hand, the device has to be manually positioned to the region of interest which further complicates the current workflow of the surgeon (who already has to manipulate the surgical tool, the handheld light source and the microscope). The main goal of the project is support the surgeon in the current workflow and provide additional information during the surgery via advanced computer vision, visualization and augmented reality algorithms.
