We are trying to port a mixed reality environment for intra-cardiac interventions from the Atamai Viewer platform to Slicer.

Approach, Plan

Our approach is to implement step by step Atamai Viewer modules into Slicer and/or use existing functionalities from Slicer (i.e. navigation).


We got navigation using OpenIGTLink 1.1 and IGSTK Sandbox to run with the NDI Aurora EM tracking system on Win32. We developed models for all necessary surgical tools for mitral valve implant and atrial septal defect repair.
