Augmented reality for interventional oncology: proof-of-concept study of a novel high-end guidance system platform

In this article, a team from Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Centre (Jerusalem) presents a AR tool to increase the precision of guidance in interventional oncology. With “Endosight” (system name) the team reports a accuracy of less than 5 mm to guide needle thought patient. Even if many things have to be improved (like the compensation of breath) it seems really encouraging.

Augmented reality can assist with needle guidance with great target accuracy for interventional procedures by simultaneously visualising three-dimensional reconstructed anatomical structures, tumour targets and interventional devices on a patient’s body, enabling performance of procedures in a simple and confident way.
