"MR-Guided Mixed Reality for Breast Conserving Surgical Planning - Preliminary Results"
Subashini Srinivasan, PhD and Brian Hargreaves, PhD

Abstract: Breast conserving surgery is the initial treatment pertformed for early stage tumors. But one out of every three to four of these patients require re-excision due to incomplete tumor removal. The overall goal of this project is to create a tool to enable surgeons to do more definitive surgeries. In collaboration with Microsoft, we have created an application in Hololens to project the supine contrast-enhanced breast MRI data on to the patient to be able to plan better incisions and reduce positive margins. In this talk, I will be presenting the set-up of the application, automatic alignment of the MRI on to the patient, and preliminary results in two patients with palpable tumors.
