Abstract:Wilms Tumour (WT) affects one out of 10,000 children before the age of fifteen. Nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) can be performed under specific rules, due to the risk of positive resection margins. This necessitates additional radiotherapy and possibly additional chemotherapy. Therefore, surgeons remain hesitant to perform NSS. We have developed and evaluated an Augmented Reality (AR) surgical navigation application in order to gain more intraoperative insight in the patient-specific anatomy. 3D meshes created from the preoperative MRI scan are imported into the HoloLens 2 (HL2). Multiple critical structures can be divided in these 3D meshes: kidney, tumour and vessels. The accuracy of this application is analysed based on the tracking ability of QR-coded markers, and the ability of the user to apply the point-based registration method based on a 3D printed kidney phantom. Subsequently, a clinical validation study is performed to analyse the user-friendliness and usability in a more clinical setting.
