Figure Legend - Augmented Reality (AR)-supported patient specific implant (PSI) reconstruction of orbital floor. From left to right: Pre-operative planning and visualization of the PSI (red) at the patient CT scan, pre-operative AR visualization of the PSI (patient awake, AR view), OR photo of facial surgeon wearing the HoloLens, intra-operative AR visualization of the PSI (patient anesthetized, AR view). Blue blocks for patient anonymization. Note, visual offset in the AR views caused by the Microsoft HoloLens video capture.


We got the Best Paper Award for our Miccai CLIP paper:

"Single-shot Deep Volumetric Regression for Mobile Medical Augmented Reality"

The corresponding talk can we re-watched here:


Happy to announce that we got one of the ultra-rare surveys in Medical Image Analysis accepted!
