Paper Abstract

The feasibility to obtain visualized information of myocardium by imaging is a new dimension. However, during heart surgery the surgeon does not need all data of images continuously. Therefore, development of strategies able to reduce flux of information transiently in between images might become important. Arrangements of images in 3-dimensional structures can produce better outlines. Images often contain information of several parameters. Therefore, a selection of important parts of the pictures might be helpful. Optical sensors will have the ability to detect dangerous situations in tissues which can release optical or acoustic signals.
