3D-ARILE: Augmented reality in operating rooms
Doctors are often confronted with the problem of identifying the precise location of lymph nodes affected by cancer. 3D-ARILE helps guide doctors to provide treatment: consisting of an augmented reality system for lymph node removal from cancer patients, it assists doctors in locating affected nodes using visual markings during operations. Before operating, doctors inject an infrared dye into the patient. This dye then accumulates in the affected nymph node, making it visible and ready for removal. The node is captured by the infrared camera and reconstructed in 3D. AR glasses then overlay the position of the lymph node as a virtual mark.
