Paper Abstract

Recently surgery requires extensive support from imaging technologies in order to increase effectiveness and safety of operations. One of important tasks is to enhance visualisation of quasi-phase (transparent) 3D structures. In this paper authors present a few of practical hardware solutions using of operational stereoscopic microscope with two image acquisition channels, stereoscopic adapter and Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) for stereoscopic visualization of operational field "in real time". Special attention is paid to the development of opto- mechanical unit. The authors focus on searching cheap, accurate and ergonomic solutions. A few proposals are analyzed: typical stereoscopic adapter with two image acquisition channels equipped with developed software for image low contrast enhancement for stereoscopic observation in stereoscopic HMD of operational field, visual - picture adapter (real operational view through microscope channels or processed operational field images observation in "real time").
