David Scott, Wenyi Zhao, Brian D Hoffman, John D Stern, Tao Zhao: Augmented visualization for a surgical robot using a captured visible image combined with a fluorescence image and a captured visible image. Intuitive Surgical Operations, October 3, 2017: US09775499

An endoscope with an optical channel is held and positioned by a robotic surgical system. A capture unit captures (1) a visible first image at a first time and (2) a visible second image combined with a fluorescence image from the light at a second time. An image processing system receives (1) the v ...
