Navigation during Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has recognized difficulties due to limited field-of-view, off-axis visualization and loss of direct 3D vision. This can cause visual-spatial disorientation when exploring complex in vivo structures. In this paper, we present an approach to dynamic view expansion which builds a 3D textured model of the MIS environment to facilitate in vivo navigation. With the proposed technique, no prior knowledge of the environment is required and the model is… CONTINUE READING
