Breast cancer conservative guided surgery with an AR headset, using 3D digital breast models, could pave the way for a digital, non-invasive method for intra-operative tumor localization. The proposed solution has the potential to improve the surgeon’s visualization of the tumor while improving patient’s quality of life (no pain, no anxiety, no bleeding).
In this article, authors explain how they used augmented reality in a real breast surgery for tumor localization. Surgeon compares classical marks on the patient body with the 3D localization of tumor with Hololens.
