Title: Augmented Reality: Advances in Intraoperative Visualization
Description: There have been significant developments in the technology of systems to facilitate evaluation of pathophysiology in the operating room. These augmented reality systems include the use of adjunctive platforms to evaluate tissue viability in colorectal and plastic surgery (eg SPY system), intraoperative imaging strategies using molecular probes for cancer visualization, and deep anatomic visualization such as flourescent cholangiography. The development of systems using technology outside of the visible light spectrum to complement intraoperative decisions traditionally made using visual and tactile information may potential increase efficacy and safety in the operating room.
