Abstract

This paper investigates the use of Kinect depth sensors as well as inertial sensors in the context of beating heart surgery. In the past, various sensors have been used in attempts to track the beating heart, each with its own distinct set of advantages and disadvantages. With the availability of affordable structured-light depth sensors such as the Kinect and sufficiently small and low priced inertial sensors, the question of their suitability for beating heart tracking arises. We performed in-vivo experiments on a porcine heart in order to assess the feasibility of beating heart tracking based on these sensors.
