ALCoV is a research group with scientists in computer vision and geometric imaging, gynecologic surgeons and radiologists. ALCoV's main research goal is to devise and implement computer-aided gynecologic laparosurgery using the paradigm of Augmented Reality. More precisely, ALCoV’s goal is to import preoperative radiological image data such as MRI and US directly to the intra-operative laparoscopic video stream. This is expected to reduce general trauma by making surgery shorter and safer, and tumor resection more accurate.
