Abstract

This research proposes a novel computer-vision-based approach for skill assessment by observing a surgeon's hand and surgical tool movements in minimally invasive surgical training, which can be extended to the evaluation in real surgeries. Videos capturing the surgical field are analyzed using a system composed of a series of computer vision algorithms. The system automatically detects major skill measuring features from surgical task videos and provides real-time performance feedback on objective and quantitative measurement of surgical skills.
