Simulation for Intra-operative Rehearsal
Participants: N. Haouchine, F. Roy, S. Cotin
DejaVu, a novel surgical simulation approach for intra-operative surgical gesture rehearsal was published in  in collaboration with UCL London. With DejaVu we aim at bridging the gap between pre-operative surgical simulation and crucial but not yet robust intra-operative surgical augmented reality. By exploiting intra-operative images we produce a simulation that faithfully matches the actual procedure without visual discrepancies and with an underlying physical modeling that performs real-time deformation of organs and surrounding tissues, surgeons can interact with the targeted organs through grasping, pulling or cutting to immediately rehearse their next gesture. We present results on different in vivo surgical procedures and demonstrate the feasibility of practical use of our system.
