Abstract

Three-dimensional visualization has recently been applied extensively in the medical field, due to price reduction and rapid development of imaging reconstruction techniques. This technique demonstrated potential utility not only for education/training, but also for surgical planning and intraoperative guidance for prostate procedures, especially prostate biopsy and radical prostatectomy. The latest innovation is the real-time elastic augmented reality imaging to overcome the issue of deformity of the prostate gland due to the grasping and stretching during surgery. It is still in a very early stage, and more studies need to be conducted to justify its widespread use.
