3D Modeling of The Pancreas For Use in Preoperative Surgical Planning and Rehearsal

The graduate student (Simon Byrns) will work closely with pancreas surgeons and experts in computer image manipulation to generate 3D models of the relevant anatomy in pancreas surgery. These models will then be printed on a 3D printer and used to investigate their utility in the preoperative planning phase prior to surgery. The use of augmented reality (superimposing computer generated images on live images) to enhance the visualization of internal structures within the 3D models will also be investigated.
