Precision in surgery procedures is of outmost importance. Technical progress in imaging sensors allowed the development of 3-Dimensional (3D) stereoscopic imaging systems. The use of 3D stereoscopic imaging aids in making the surgery faster and more precise. It provides a realistic view of the tissue being operated on and depth perception that is lacking from conventional video stream. We present an innovative real time stereoscopic imaging system for guiding surgery. The system consists of two orthogonally oriented imaging sensors. A cube beam splitter is used to project the same frame onto both sensors, with a slight displacement. Each frame from each sensor is processed, using Color Anaglyph 3D. The resulting video stream is displayed on a monitor and viewed through 3D red cyan glasses to provide realistic three-dimensional video.
