Abstract

Precise measurements of reference points would be mandatory if robotic equipments would be introduced in operation rooms. We develop a real-time laser-pointing endoscope using an optical galvano scanner and a 955fps high-speed camera. This system provides the scanned 3D image of the liver under the endoscopic surgery and a touch screen interface so that surgeons can intuitively indicate points of interest with precise 3D position. Some results of in-vivo experiments on a liver of pig are shown to verify the effectiveness of the proposed.
