Abstract

With the use of different technological equipment, it becomes a complex challenge to have a fully integrated operating room, with adequate communication between devices. In this paper, we present the Medical Image Guided and Holographic TherapY (MIGHTY) platform, a software development kit for surgical applications that integrates computer-assisted planning, augmented reality, real-time imaging and collaborative robotics in the same environment. To show MIGHTY’s capabilities, a representative use case – abdominal biopsy – is addressed. We tested quantitatively the throughput of the involved applications, and the precision of the scene-tracking methods. Throughput results scored satisfactorily high in regards to the system’s real-time performance, and the tracking methods, although improvable, were good for the purpose of this work, which aims on the integration and cooperation of all the involved technologies, rather than on the individual accuracy of each one of them.
