The world s ﬁrst Oculus Rift robotic surgical navigation using da Vinci surgical system.
We captured an robotic endoscopic operation broadcast in stereo-3D and the patient's CT image
reconstructed in stereo-3D volume rendering using OsiriX-3D(Newton Graphics Inc.) simultaneously.
Using an Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset, we could get a Hi-res 3D vision of the realtime
surgery and CT image-based navigation with a great ﬁeld of view. Watching the scene with the
Oculus Rift is a great experience.
The ﬁrst Oculus Rift and OsiriX stereo-3D "live surgery" is a new way to train medical students and
@Tokyo Nephro Urology Center Yamato Hospital in November 2014.
