To study the three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction and 3D visualization of the pancreas and create anatomy of the digitalized visual pancreas so as to construct a concrete basis for virtual operation and surgical operation on pancreas.
The digital imaging data of pancreas, duodenum, common bile duct, arteries and veins were obtained from the Virtual Chinese Human-Female 1 (VCH-F1) and processed using ACDSee and Photoshop so as to reconstruct 3D pancreas digitally and realize 3D visualization of pancreas.
We successfully 3D reconstructed and visualized the pancreas and the peri-pancreatic structures: the duodenum, the common bile duct, the inferior vena cava, the portal vein vessels, the aorta, the ceoliac trunk vessels. The 3D and visualized pancreas manifested itself with its complete structure as well as its adjacency to other tissues.
The 3D reconstruction and 3D visualization of the pancreas based on the digital data of VCH-F1 produces a digitally visualized pancreas, which promises us a novel method for virtual operation on pancreas, clinical operation on pancreas and anatomy of 3D visualized pancreas.
