      Purpose This study aims to evaluate the accuracy of point-based registration (PBR) when used for augmented reality (AR) in laparoscopic liver resection surgery. Material and methods The study was conducted in three ...
    • Long-term oncologic outcomes after laparoscopic versus open resection for colorectal liver metastasis 

      Aghayan, Davit; Kazaryan, Airazat; Dagenborg, Vegar Johansen; Røsok, Bård Ingvald; Fagerland, Morten Wang; Bjørnelv, Gudrun Maria Waaler; Kristiansen, Ronny; Flatmark, Kjersti; Fretland, Åsmund Avdem; Edwin, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Background: Despite the recent worldwide dissemination of laparoscopic liver surgery, no high-level evidence supports the oncologic safety of this approach. Objective: To evaluate long-term oncologic outcomes after ...
    • The effect of intraoperative imaging on surgical navigation for laparoscopic liver resection surgery 

      Teatini, Andrea; Pelanis, Egidijus; Aghayan, Davit; Kumar, Rahul Prasanna; Palomar, Rafael; Fretland, Åsmund Avdem; Edwin, Bjørn; Elle, Ole Jacob (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Conventional surgical navigation systems rely on preoperative imaging to provide guidance. In laparoscopic liver surgery, insufflation of the abdomen (pneumoperitoneum) can cause deformations on the liver, introducing ...
    • Use of mixed reality for improved spatial understanding of liver anatomy 

      Pelanis, Egidijus; Kumar, Rahul Prasanna; Aghayan, Davit; Palomar, Rafael; Fretland, Åsmund Avdem; Brun, Henrik; Elle, Ole Jacob; Edwin, Bjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Introduction: In liver surgery, medical images from pre-operative computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are the basis for the decision-making process. These images are used in surgery planning and guidance, ...
    • Use of mixed reality for surgery planning: Assessment and development workflow 

      Kumar, Rahul Prasanna; Pelanis, Egidijus; Bugge, Robin Antony Birkeland; Brun, Henrik; Palomar, Rafael; Aghayan, Davit; Fretland, Åsmund Avdem; Edwin, Bjørn; Elle, Ole Jacob (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Meticulous preoperative planning is an important part of any surgery to achieve high levels of precision and avoid complications. Conventional medical 2D images and their corresponding three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions ...
