Paper Abstract

Real-time visualization of imaging data constitutes a critical part of surgical workflow. Augmented reality (AR) is a promising tool to assist in conventional surgical navigation systems. We have been developing an AR framework for clinical imaging and guidance using an optical see-through head-mounted display (OST-HMD) and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIm) instrumentation. This framework supports in vivo scanning of FLIm data and the real-time visualization of diagnostic information overlaid on the interrogated tissue area. With the high discriminative power of FLIm, our FLIm-AR concept has the potential for indicating tumor margins and assisting with tumor excision surgery.
