Surgical navigation system for sinus surgery

  •  Sinus surgery is one of the challenging procedures for surgeons since a complex access route to paransal sinuses is formed in the nose.
Warning system
 Warning system provides surgeons visual and auditory information.
  •  In the case of less-experienced surgeons, there is a possibility of damaging the orbit and the skull base, which causes the complication.
Transparency change
 Transparency change function reduces the disturbance of sight of surgeons from the augmented objects.
  •  In order to help surgeons, we developed AR based surgical navigation platform for sinus surgery which includes following functions: warning system, transparency change function, measurement of the distance between the endoscope and target in real time.
 measurement function
 The measurement function provides surgeons the depth information.
