Abstract

A system called the virtual reality assisted surgery program (VRASP) is being developed for implementation into the hospital operating room (OR). VRASP is being developed specifically to assist surgeons during craniofacial, neurologic, orthopedic, thoracic, and urologic surgery. This system is expected to bring to the OR all of the presurgical planning data and rehearsal information in synchrony with the actual patient and operation in order to optimize the effectiveness of the procedure, minimize patient morbidity, and reduce health care costs.
