This paper gives an overview of computer-assisted and image-guided systems for abdominal interventions. Computer-assisted means that the power of the computer is used to provide the physician a virtual reality view of the anatomy. Image-guided means that the intervention is carried out based on imaging modalities such as CT, MM, and ultrasound. These minimally invasive procedures are rapidly increasing in popularity as they cause less trauma to the patient and the technology to carry them out continues to improve.
