Mixed reality visualizations are increasingly studied for use in image guided surgery (IGS) systems, yet few mixed reality systems have been introduced for daily use into the operating room (OR). This may be the result of several factors: the systems are developed from a technical perspective, are rarely evaluated in the field, and/or lack consideration of the end user and the constraints of the OR. We introduce the Data, Visualization processing, View (DVV) taxonomy which defines each of the…

A Realistic Test and Development Environment for Mixed Reality in Neurosurgery
TLDR
This work presents a test and development environment for augmented reality visualization techniques and provides an example of the system use for image guided neurovascular surgery.
The state of the art of visualization in mixed reality image guided surgery
A recent review and a taxonomy for hard and soft tissue visualization‐based mixed reality
Mixed reality (MR) visualization is gaining popularity in image‐guided surgery (IGS) systems, especially for hard and soft tissue surgeries. However, a few MR systems are implemented in real time.
Volume Visualization for Neurovascular Augmented Reality Surgery
TLDR
An augmented reality (AR) system to visualize the pre-operative vascular data within the context of a microscope/camera image and aids the surgeon to better understand the topology and locations of vessels that lie below the visible surface of the cortex.
Exploring Mixed Reality in Specialized Surgical Environments
TLDR
Through a combination of literature review, expert analysis, and prototyping, the use of Mixed Reality in healthcare is explored and considerations for the future design and development of virtual interfaces grounded in reality are outlined.
Application of Mixed Reality Technology in Visualization of Medical Operations.
TLDR
The composition and technical characteristics of medical operation visualization system based on mixed reality technology are discussed, and some typical applications of mixed realitytechnology in medical operation visualize are introduced, which provides a new perspective for the application of mixed technology in medical surgery.
Configurable Software Framework for 2D/3D Video See-Through Displays in Medical Applications
TLDR
This paper presents a software framework suitable for AR video see-through systems conceived for medical applications that allows merging of real world images grabbed by one or more external cameras with computer-generated sceneries coregistered to the acquired images.
Augmented reality in neurosurgery: a systematic review
TLDR
Current literature confirms that AR is a reliable and versatile tool when performing minimally invasive approaches in a wide range of neurosurgical diseases, although prospective randomized studies are not yet available and technical improvements are needed.

DVV: Towards a Taxonomy for Mixed Reality Visualization in Image Guided Surgery
TLDR
The DVV taxonomy (Data, Visualization processing, View) which defines each of the major components of a mixed reality image-guided surgery (IGS) system is introduced and the usefulness of the taxonomy is demonstrated by classifying fifteen state-of-the-art research papers in the domain of mixed reality visualization IGS systems.
Advanced Display and Visualization Concepts for Image Guided Surgery
TLDR
This paper discusses the fundamental issues and the recent endeavors in advanced display and visualization for IGS, and presents some of the recent work comparing two navigation systems: a classical monitor based navigation and a new navigation system based on in situ visualization.
CAMPAR: a software framework guaranteeing quality for medical augmented reality
TLDR
A general approach for a software architecture needed for in-situ visualization for augmented reality visualization during medical procedures such as minimally invasive surgery is described.
Illustrative visualization of 3D planning models for augmented reality in liver surgery
TLDR
The presented illustration methods are beneficial for distance assessment in surgical AR and to increase the safety of interventions with the proposed approach, the reduction of inaccuracies in tracking and registration is a subject of the current research.
Improving Depth Perception in Medical AR A Virtual Vision Panel to the Inside of the Patient
TLDR
This paper introduces the technical realization of the window and introduces a Virtual Window superimposed onto the real skin of the patient to create the feeling of getting a view on the inside of the patients.
Virtual Window for Improved Depth Perception in Medical AR
TLDR
This paper describes the technical realization of the virtual window, a technique to overcome the misleading depth perception caused by superimposed virtual entities of the AR scene onto real imagery in real skin.
Uncertainty Visualization in Medical Volume Rendering Using Probabilistic Animation
TLDR
The methods have been evaluated by radiologists in a study simulating the clinical task of stenosis assessment, in which the animation technique is shown to outperform traditional rendering in terms of assessment accuracy.
The Virtual Mirror: A New Interaction Paradigm for Augmented Reality Environments
TLDR
The concept of a tangible/controllable virtual mirror for medical AR applications intuitively augments the direct view of the surgeon with all desired views on volumetric medical imaging data registered with the operation site without moving around the operating table or displacing the patient.
Merging virtual objects with the real world: seeing ultrasound imagery within the patient
TLDR
Initial results which show “live” ultrasound echography data visualized within a pregnant human subject is described, which may have many other applications, e.g., image guided surgical procedures and on location 3D interactive architecture preview.
GPU-accelerated Rendering for Medical Augmented Reality in Minimally-invasive Procedures
TLDR
This approach allows direct realtime stereo visualization of volumetric medical data on a HMD without prior time consuming pre-processing or segmentation and implements a virtual mirror and occlusion handling with the physicians hands and tracked medical instruments.
