Abstract:OP 2000 is a concept of the future of surgery, where new technologies are optimized and used in the clinical routine. Simulation and visualization techniques are applied for the training of surgical procedures in a virtual environment which employs an enhanced, high immersive workbench projection (the Surgical Table). Touching and navigation of virtual objects is achieved by implementation of a haptic device with simultaneous stereoscopic visualization in a distributed network environment. This allows multiple users to feel the shape and surface structure of an organ with simultaneous stereoscopic visualization and tracking of the user for surgical training. High quality and high definition cameras have been adapted to different medical imaging devices and tested for medical purposes. Stereoscopic visualization has been realized to achieve a better spatial coordination of the surgeon where he has to rely on video images. The wavelet-based interactive video communication system WinVicos has been designed especially for different telemedical applications. Applying more and more effective compression techniques real-time transmission of stereoscopic video using less bandwidth has become available.
