iPad helped to perform a liver surgery

The surgeons in Germany used iPad to perform a liver surgery. The device helped them to access and visualize planning data. Reuters informs that the doctors used an augmented reality app to overlay the liver with virtual 3D models reconstructed from the real organ.

Developed by Fraunhofer MEVIS in Bremen, this procedure helps locate critical structures such as tumors and vessels and is expected to improve the quality of transferring pre operational resection plans into actual surgery.

Have a look at the photos of the surgery.
