Abstract

Abstract An overview of the current status of the development of our navigation system for resection of liver tumours is given. The system is based on intraoperative three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound volumes for image-guided navigation of surgical instruments. It is also possible to perform a virtual 3D planning of the tumour resection and to non-rigidly register these preoperative models to the intraoperative ultrasound volume.
