Abstract

This paper introduces a registration and projection method for directly projecting the tumor region for breast cancer surgery assistance based on the breast procedure of our collaborating doctor. We investigated the steps of the breast cancer procedure of our collaborating doctor and how it can be applied for tumor region projection. We propose a novel way of MRI acquisition so we may correlate the MRI coordinates to the patient in the real world. By calculating the transformation matrix from the MRI coordinates and the coordinates from the markers that is on the patient, we are able to register the acquired MRI data to the patient. Our registration and presentation method of the tumor region was then evaluated by medical doctors.
