Abstract
This paper examines the potential of Virtual Reality technology in endoscopic surgery. Firstly, the advantages of visualisation with augmented reality are discussed. Secondly, the paper looks at how a Virtual Reality based interface can make surgical manipulators easier and safer to use. The interface is based on a six degree-of-freedom pointing device marketed by Immersion Corporation. This Interface is part of the Cooperative Interactive Application-Tools (CIA) which gives the surgeon a complete interaction environment.
