Augmented reality using 3D shape model for ultrasound-guided percutaneous renal access: A pig model study


Successful percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) highly depends on an accurate needle access into the kidney. This step is challenging and must be performed under intraoperative image guidance. This paper presents a 3D augmented reality method for ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous renal access in PCNL. First, a 3D statistical kidney model is built aforehand… (More)
