The use of vision based algorithms in minimally invasive surgery has attracted significant attention in recent years due to its potential in providing in situ 3D tissue deformation recovery for intra-operative surgical guidance and robotic navigation. Thus far, a large number of feature descriptors have been proposed in computer vision but direct application of these techniques to minimally invasive surgery has shown significant problems due to free-form tissue deformation and varying visual… CONTINUE READING
