  • A virtual surgical environment for rehearsal of tympanomastoidectomy. Studies in health technology and informatics Chan, S., Li, P., Lee, D. H., Salisbury, J. K., Blevins, N. H. 2011; 163: 112-118


    This article presents a virtual surgical environment whose purpose is to assist the surgeon in preparation for individual cases. The system constructs interactive anatomical models from patient-specific, multi-modal preoperative image data, and incorporates new methods for visually and haptically rendering the volumetric data. Evaluation of the system's ability to replicate temporal bone dissections for tympanomastoidectomy, using intraoperative video of the same patients as guides, showed strong correlations between virtual and intraoperative anatomy. The result is a portable and cost-effective tool that may prove highly beneficial for the purposes of surgical planning and rehearsal.
