The visualization of 3D models of the patient’s body emerges as a priority in surgery both in pre-operative planning and during surgical procedures and the introduction of new modalities of interaction with the 3D models of the human organs could be required.
A multi-touch screen has been developed that provides a user interface customized for doctor requirements and allows many users to interact at the same time with 3D models of the human body built from CT images. The use results very simple and evident for the user and the system can be a helpful tool for the diagnosis and the surgical pre-operation planning.
