Clancy NT, Stoyanov D, Maier-Hein L, Groch A, Yang GZ, Elson DSet al., 2011, Spectrally-encoded fibre-based structured lighting probe for intraoperative 3D imaging, Biomedical Optics Express, Vol: 2, Pages: 3119-3128, ISSN: 2156-7085

Three dimensional quantification of organ shape and structure during minimally invasive surgery (MIS) could enhance precision by allowing the registration of multi-modal or pre-operative image data (US/MRI/CT) with the live optical image. Structured illumination is one technique to obtain 3D information through the projection of a known pattern onto the tissue, although currently these systems tend to be used only for macroscopic imaging or open procedures rather than in endoscopy. To account for occlusions, where a projected feature may be hidden from view and/or confused with a neighboring point, a flexible multispectral structured illumination probe has been developed that labels each projected point with a specific wavelength using a supercontinuum laser. When imaged by a standard endoscope camera they can then be segmented using their RGB values, and their 3D coordinates calculated after camera calibration. The probe itself is sufficiently small (1.7 mm diameter) to allow it to be used in the biopsy channel of commonly used medical endoscopes. Surgical robots could therefore also employ this technology to solve navigation and visualization problems in MIS, and help to develop advanced surgical procedures such as natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery.

Background. Minimally invasive surgical techniques such as single access and natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) aim to reduce the number of external scars on the patient but impose restrictions on the space available for the light source within the endoscope and, therefore, the size of the field of view that can be sufficiently illuminated. Materials and Methods. This article presents and compares a number of illumination methods (xenon, light-emitting diodes, laser/phosphor, supercontinuum laser) that could be applied in single-access, robotic, and NOTES procedures. The luminance, spectral content, and intensity profile of each source was measured. Standardized images of each illuminating an abdominal simulator were assessed by a group of surgeons to provide an initial clinical impression. Results. The xenon source was found to have the highest luminance when used with a standard laparoscopic light cable, but this was significantly reduced when used with a small cable suitable for single-access applications. The supercontinuum laser–based light source had brightness comparable to the xenon, which was supported by the surgical test group observations. Conclusions. The supercontinuum fiber probe is a potential alternative to xenon light sources for use in single-access surgery with its comparable luminance, small diameter, flexibility, and even illumination. An initial in vivo test is described, providing a guide for future development

A gaze-contingent autofocus system using an eye-tracker and liquid lens has been constructed for use with a surgical robot, making it possible to rapidly (within tens of milliseconds) change focus using only eye-control. This paper reports the results of a user test comparing the eye-tracker to a surgical robot’s in-built mechanical focusing system. In the clinical environment, this intuitive interface removes the need for an external mechanical control and improves the speed at which surgeons can make decisions, based on the visible features. Possible applications include microsurgery and gastrointestinal procedures where the object distance changes due to breathing and/or peristalsis.
