Augmented Reality (AR) is a promising tool for intraoperative visualization. Two different AR systems, one projector based, one based on see-through glasses were used on patients. The task was the transfer of preoperative planning into the intraoperative reality, or the visualization of space occupying lesions, respectively. The intraoperative application(More)
The Institute for Process Control and Robotics has developed a new system using projector based augmented reality for the intraoperative visualization of preoperatively defined surgical planning data. Projector based augmented reality in medical applications represents a new field of research and gives an alternative solution to the commonly used Head(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to implement augmented reality in real-time image-guided interstitial brachytherapy to allow an intuitive real-time intraoperative orientation. METHODS AND MATERIALS The developed system consists of a common video projector, two high-resolution charge coupled device cameras, and an off-the-shelf notebook. The projector was(More)
While an increasing number of operation planning systems enable surgeons to preoperatively define and plan complex surgical interventions, providing these planning data intraoperatively in a reasonable way is still a challenging task. We have developed a new system using projector based augmented reality for the intraoperative visualization of(More)
Due to rapid developments in the research areas of medical imaging, medical image processing and robotics, computer-assisted interventions (CAI) are becoming an integral part of modern patient care. From a software engineering point of view, these systems are highly complex and research can benefit greatly from reusing software components. This is supported(More)
