Wenyi Zhao, Chenyu Wu, David Hirvonen, Christopher J Hasser, Brian E Miller, Catherine J Mohr, Myriam J Curet, Tao Zhao, Simon Dimaio, Brian D Hoffman: Efficient 3-d telestration for local robotic proctoring. Intuitive Surgical, Patent Dept, Intuitive Surgical Operations, July 1, 2010: US20100164950-A1

An apparatus is configured to show telestration in 3-D to a surgeon in real time. A proctor is shown one side of a stereo image pair, such that the proctor can draw a telestration line on the one side with an input device. Points of interest are identified for matching to the other side of the stere ...

David Scott, Wenyi Zhao, Christopher J Hasser, Brian D Hoffman, Ian McDowall, Catherine J Mohr, John D Stern: Augmented stereoscopic visualization for a surgical robot using time duplexing. Intuitive Surgical, Patent Dept, Intuitive Surgical, October 29, 2009: US20090270678-A1

An endoscope with a stereoscopic optical channel is again held and positioned by a robotic surgical system. A capture unit captures (1) at a first time, a first image from light from the channel; and (2) at a second time different from the first time, a second image from the light. Only one of the f ...
