Ultrasound Based Planning and Navigation for Non-Anatomical Liver Resections – An Ex-Vivo Study
Non-anatomical resections of liver tumors can be very challenging as the surgeon cannot use anatomical landmarks on the liver surface or in the ultrasound image for guidance. This makes it difficult to achieve negative resection margins (R0) and still preserve... Read more
