Abstract

Intravascular neurosurgery is one of the most difficult surgery in visual and operation sense. Because a surgeon or an interventionist must operate long and elastic catheters in the long way to the brain with only indirect and projective monitors of X-ray fluoroscopy. To overcome such difficulties, a novel system was proposed and was developed using virtualized reality technique. The system displays 3D reconstructed vessels and virtualized live-video screens for X-ray fluoroscopy images. By registration using markers, surgeons can observe live X-ray fluoroscopy with a semi-transparent 3D vascular model as a roadmap. The system also provides endovaseular views helpful for detail observation of vascular and pathological structures like neck shape of aneurysms. Through clinical examination, accuracy of the system was evaluated.
