Advanced Visualization for Navigated Surgery in Orthopedics

Contact Persons

Alexander WinklerUlrich Eck


Navigation in surgery was born from the desire to perform safer and less invasive procedures. It mainly answers the questions "Where is my (anatomical) target?" and "Where am I (anatomically)?"

This projects proposes the combination of navigated surgery with Advanced Visualization techniques, for example Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) for healthcare professionals. This enables additional visual cues and interaction methods to improve 3D understanding and thus patient outcome.
