Summary Background: In neurovascular therapy, normally surgeons directly instruct a radiologist to operate a computer on their behalf to maintain sterility in the operative field when reconfirming medical images. This process, however, takes time and causes psychological burden.
Methods: A touchless interface operated by hand-gestures and voice named "Opect3D" was developed to resolve the above issues. Initially, the Opect3D and conventional verbal communication were compared preclinically. The operation time for deciding the rotation angle and the angular difference against the targeted position were measured and calculated, respectively. Afterwards, Opect3D was utilized in unruptured cerebral aneurysms and the usefulness and psychological burden were surveyed.
