David Q Larkin, Thomas Robert Nixon, David Stephen Mintz: Tool position and identification indicator displayed in a boundary area of a computer display screen. Intuitive Surgical Operations, August 1, 2017: US09718190 (4 worldwide citation)

An endoscope captures images of a surgical site for display in a viewing area of a monitor. When a tool is outside the viewing area, a GUI indicates the position of the tool by positioning a symbol in a boundary area around the viewing area so as to indicate the tool position. The distance of the ou ...
