Abstract:

We will study how our advanced autostereoscopic minimally invasive surgery. While the performance bstereo are clear, recent stereoscopic products have been slow to gain acceptance. Existing systems hcost/performance levels required for clinical application. These systems, which require a the surgeoglasses, have inherent performance limitations, and cost 2-3 times more than conventional monoscopicdisplay technology which can overcome many of these limitations; it is called autostereoscopy, and mdepth can be viewed without special glasses. The technology can be embodied in a compact form, suitawithin the sterile field of a patient. This allows for ideal positioning of the display to optimizecoordination. These advantages provide the foundation for achieving the necessary performance levelsendo/laparoscopic surgery. DTI will conduct applied testing with its autostereoscopic technology. Tecritical system issues and quantify improvements in performance for endoscopic surgical procedures.results to develop an autostereoscopic display system which will deliver improved performance for ensurgery, at an acceptable cost.
