Application: Deep brain path planning using augmented reality (Patent ID: US20230404678A1)

The patent filed by Koninklijke Philips NV describes a medical system that utilizes augmented reality to assist in procedures involving the brain. The system receives segmented medical imaging data of the brain and cranial surface, determines a target location within the brain, and calculates optimal paths for entry using the segmented data. These paths are then visualized in a three-dimensional field of view of the operator through augmented reality, aiding in accurate navigation during procedures.

Furthermore, the system can adjust for changes in the brain's structure due to procedures like puncturing the skull or draining cerebral fluid. It also allows for real-time feedback to the user, such as displaying the angle or speed of needle insertion. The technology can be used for various medical implements like biopsy needles or surgical needles, providing precise guidance based on the segmented medical imaging data. Overall, the system enhances the accuracy and safety of brain-related procedures through advanced visualization and guidance techniques.
