Title:
Method, apparatus, and system for utilizing augmented reality to improve surgery
Authors:
Cali, Corrado; Besuchet, Jonathan
Assignee:
King Abdullah University Of Science And Technology
Abstract:
A method, apparatus, and computer readable medium are provided for utilizing augmented reality visualization to assist surgery. An example method includes generating a three dimensional reconstruction of an image stack representing a target area of a patient, and superimposing, by a head-mounted display, a projection of the three dimensional reconstruction onto a field of view of a user. The method further includes maintaining alignment between the projection and the user's actual view of the target area using a plurality of fiducial markers associated with the target area. In some embodiments, the method further includes scanning the target area to generate the image stack.
