SYNCHRONIZATION ISSUES IN SURGICAL TRAINING

Álvaro Marco, Héctor Gracia, Ángel Asensio, Carlos Guallart, José Ignacio Artigas, Roberto Casas

Abstract

Surgical training systems allow novel surgeons to acquire the required skills to successfully carry out an operation without harming a real patient. These systems emulate the situation of a real operation, replicating the information gathered by sensors, movements of the surgeon, patient response, etc. All this information must be synchronized to provide an experience to the novel surgeon as closest to reality as possible. A special case of information synchronization is when using video images from the operation. In this paper, we analyze these synchronization issues —video, movements, sensors, etc. — and show a particular case that bring all together: an endoscopic video-surgery learning system.
