Feasibility and effectiveness of open MRI-guided real-time augmented or virtual-reality navigation surgery was evaluated. Laparoscopic surgeries, percutaneous ablation therapy of liver cancers, and breast-conserving surgery with open MRI therapeutic room were so far feasible and effective.
An automated lymph node detection for preoperative simulations, a clinical application of virtual pneumoperitoneum and a fly-through simulation of the venous system were evaluated. The results showed sufficient feasibility of these applications. The platforms of integrated information to clinical practices such as a tailor-made simulation or a real-time navigation for minimally-invasive treatments seem to have been established.
