BACKGROUND The objective of this work is to evaluate a new concept of intraoperative three-dimensional (3D) visualization system to support hepatectomy. The Resection Map aims to provide accurate cartography for surgeons, who can therefore anticipate risks, increase their confidence and achieve safer liver resection. METHODS In an experimental prospective(More)
Objective To propose a new concept of an intra-operative 3D visualisation system to support hepatectomies. This system aims at improving the transfer of pre-operative planning into the intra-operative stage, both in laparoscopic and open approaches. Materials and methods User (surgeon) centred developmental process to identify the surgical requirements is(More)
The availability of VR laparoscopic simulation for surgical training has increased significantly. Nevertheless, few studies have explored such simulators' requirements and the degree of fidelity necessary to provide effective educational tools. The authors aim to identify which didactic resources available in VR simulation technologies are most important(More)
A key concern in the design of a simulator is the level of realism necessary for proper training, and the underlying question about the level of fidelity required. A new experimental method for surgeon sensory interaction characterization has been defined and implemented. It aims to determine the relative importance of three components of surgical skill(More)
