Virtual Liver Surgery Planning
The liver surgery planning system (LSPS) developed at our institute is addressing obstacles associated with surgical planning of planning liver tumor resections based on CT image data. The main goal is to support radiologist's during data preparation and to give surgeons precise information for making optimal decisions. This was achieved by combining the fields of medical image analysis and computer graphics, which allows for innovative problem solutions, especially when user interaction with complex 3D objects is needed. The following figure gives an overview of the main parts of the system.
