This ebook constitutes the refereed court cases of the overseas Workshop on Augemented Environments for Computer-Assisted Interventions, held along with MICCAI 2012, in great, France in September 2012. The sixteen revised complete papers awarded have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from 22 submissions. The papers hide the themes of snapshot registration and fusion, calibration, visualization and 3D belief, and optical layout, real-time implementation, in addition to validation, medical purposes, and medical evaluation.

Visualizing organ motion on a cutting plane of the volumetric dataset can be adequately achieved with standard flow visualization techniques [14,13]. Figure 1(a) shows such a rendering. It is evident that rendering only a 2D cutting plane results in losing the anatomical context in the visualization. Furthermore, out-of-plane motion can not be visualized with this approach. For that reason, this work will only discuss 3D visualizations using volume rendering as the technique of choice for providing fast and anatomically preserving volumetric visualizations [3,12].

Other efforts have leveraged the use of complex imaging technology to enable visualization and monitoring of therapy delivery in real time [6]. Despite the high quality anatomical and functional information, modalities such as CT and MRI are neither efficient nor practical in the interventional suite due to high cost, lack of accessibility, high radiation dose or high magnetic fields, and presence of bulky equipment in the operating room.
