Although Augmented Reality (AR) promises to provide valuable means for Computer-Aided Surgery, the underlaying technologies often create a cumbersome work environment that is inadequate for clinical employment. A great deal of research is still needed to develop comfortable and easy-to-use tools providing an augmented view of the patient and its main internal structures. In this paper we propose to develop an AR system for enhanced visualization of the liver that involves minimal annoyance for both the surgeon and the patient. The ultimate application of our system is to assist the surgeon in oncological liver surgery.
