Abstract

The purpose of this study is to construct a system for surgical assistance by touchless interactions. In the clinical site, surgeons usually need to use some contacting devices to display or visualize medical images and check the anatomic information of the patient. However, after operating the visualization device, re-sterilization is necessary in order to maintain hygiene. Though some touchless surgery support systems using Kinect have been developed, their functions are not enough for surgical support. In this paper, we develop a new system, which can visualize 3D medical image by simple touchless single-handed interactions.
