Our aim is to develop a surgical navigation system for safer implementation of open surgery. The navigation system uses short 3D laparoscope to obtain surgical field image. By overlaying 3D models of surgery targets such as organs, tumors and blood vessels on the image, we aim to develop a system in which the operator will be able to instinctively grasp information such as how deep the blood vessels are in the surgical field. In addition to developing a basic system for the navigation, we have also developed a function that would complete registration at the shortest time possible, annotation function for anatomical names for surgical staff to share navigation information and a function to reflect organ resection plane planned before operation.
