A new 3D scanning technology is being used to help train surgeons. The Project Odysseus system takes a 3D scan of a patient’s liver before actual surgery, giving a detailed visualization of what the particular liver will look like (as the organ can be quite different from one person to the next). Project Odysseus also allows the surgeons to get remote input from other specialists, and a virtual surgery tool mimics surfaces and textures they might encounter during surgery.
