This is an example of a new endoscopic 3-D imaging simulator created from a patient's computed tomography (CT) scan using Fujifilm's Synapse 3D advanced visualization software. The feature was released at the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) 2019 meeting. The software enables surgical pre-procedural planning to assess the best entry points and angles. The software also enables users to perform a virtual peritoneal inflation using the advanced imaging platform.
The software shows the anatomy color coded so structures are easier to identify and to aid navigation. In this example, a pancreatic tumor is highlighted in green, which is the target of this virtual simulation.
