This paper aims to be an outlet for speeding up workflow of surgery and be helpful for surgeons to simply coordinate transformations between several imaging displays. Visualizing 2D and 3D information within Cardiac Surgery is challenging. Restricted visualization in the surgical field is one of the most acute challenges for minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Due to the low image contrast and high tortuosity of the Angiographic images in cardiac surgery, it is difficult for even experienced radiologists to understand that images. They can thereby hardly meet the requirements of high resolution and 3D visualization of the surgical scene to support the understanding of anatomic structures for safe MIS procedures. Multiple monitors are required in the operating room for the visualization of data. Resent day’s radiologists are specially trained to understand such images. But the drawback is they need to surmise and many a times, the guessing can be wrong. We solve this problem by using a 3d augmented visualization. Image volume rendering technique is used for the augmented reality. This is more comfortable for the radiologist to comprehend. The main intention is to develop a complete angiographic visualization system that displays 2D X-ray and 3D anatomical information in a single monitor for the surgeon in the operating room. Based on this concept, we present a flexible method for highlighting and enhancing angiographic images.
