Robotic ultrasound can be used for 3D volume compounding by storing probe poses while acquiring an ultrasound series. Our current effort focuses on a reliable real-time calibration of MRI data to a patient’s body in a robot world coordinate system using a structured-light 3D scanner.
Camera Augmented Mobile C-arm (CamC) is the newest addition to LCSR which was initially invented by Prof. Nassir Navab in 1998 at Siemens Corporate Research. It allows the fusion of X-ray and the optical camera, and it is the only practically accepted intra-operative augmented reality system.

The Oculus Rift has been a great success since its first announce-ment back in 2012. A multitude of different games and demos were published which make use of the virtual reality possibilities the Rift offers. With the recent release of the second version development kit (DK2), a higher-resolution display, higher refresh rates and positional head tracking were added, giving rise to a wider range of application fields, including medicine.
The LCSR Industry Day on 09/08/2014 was a great opportunity to bring the Magic Mirror in action and show it to the public once more. Not only was the fun factor a great introduction in our lab pod presentation, but also we could utilize the set of various users for an informal usability study.
