Current-generation vision for laparoscopic surgery involves flat two-dimensional display on a video monitor; this approach makes it difficult to accurately place the tip of a surgical instrument in the three-dimensional real space of the patient. The surgeon must rely on motion parallax, monocular cues, and other indirect evidence of depth to judge accurately the correct spatial relationship of objects in the field of view. Stereoscopic video can return accuracy to the surgeon. Critical… CONTINUE READING
