Researchers developing self-aligning internal vision for surgeons

A vision system that allows surgeons to "see inside" a patient before making the first cut is under development. Researchers at MIT (Cambridge, MA), Brigham and Women`s Hospital (Boston, MA), and The Analytical Sciences Corp. (Reading, MA) used defense research on computer vision for target recognition as the basis of the system. A 3-D magnetic-resonance-imaging (MRI) ma¥of a patient`s internal anatomy is superimposed over a live video of the patient, allowing alignment of the images regardl
