- Conventional surgical navigation requires for surgeons to move their sight and conscious off the surgical field when checking surgical tool's positions shown on the display panel. Since that takes high risks of surgical exposure possibilities to the patient's body, we propose a novel method for guiding surgical tool position and orientation directly in the surgical field by a laser beam. In our navigation procedure, two cross-sectional planar laser beams are emitted from the two laser devices attached onto both sides of an optical localizer, and show surgical tool's entry position on the patient's body surface and its orientation on the side face of the surgical tool. In the experiments, our method gave the surgeons precise and accurate surgical tool adjusting and showed the feasibility to apply to both of open and percutaneous surgeries.
