Augmentation of Segmented Liver Data onto the Endoscope View

Introduction

One way to treat liver tumors is the laparoscopic surgery. To help the physician finding these tumors on the laparoscopic view, a preoperatively genrerated model of the liver gets fused with the video from the laparoscope. This application is developed to work on a phantom currently developed at MITI.

Tasks

  • Calibration: To set the correct camera pose for viewing the model in the application, the laparoscope with an attached target is tracked by a tracking system. The tracking system is capable to recognize the pose of the target. By a suitable calibration method, the transformation between the target and the camera is computed.

  • Registration: Once the camera is setup correctly, the pose of the liver model has to be registerd with the one of the real liver. In a first stage this will be done with the matching of corresponding 3D points. Markers, visible in a ct-scan, can be fixed onto the phantoms skin. In a segmentation step the 3D positions of the markers in the ct-scan get extracted. During the treatment of the phantom the markers are detected by the tracking system. With an iterative closest point matching algorithm, both pointsets can be aligned.

  • Implementation: The application will be implemented in C++. OpenGL?, FreeGLUT?, OpenInventor? (Coin3D) and XercesC? will be used as additional libraries to handle the graphical output and xml processing.

The calibration and registration will be implemented in a library for usage in future projects.
