  • Patent number: 10716457
    Abstract: A method and system for calculating a volume of resected tissue from a stream of intraoperative images is disclosed. A stream of 2D/2.5D intraoperative images of resected tissue of a patient is received. The 2D/2.5D intraoperative images in the stream are acquired at different angles with respect to the resected tissue. A resected tissue surface is segmented in each of the 2D/2.5D intraoperative images. The segmented resected tissue surfaces are stitched to generate a 3D point cloud representation of the resected tissue surface. A 3D mesh representation of the resected tissue surface is generated from the 3D point cloud representation of the resected tissue surface. The volume of the resected tissue is calculated from the 3D mesh representation of the resected tissue surface.
