Although the CT device can give the doctors a series of 2D medical images, it is difficult to give vivid view for the doctors to acknowledge the decrease part. In order to help the doctors to plot the surgery, the virtual surgery system is researched based on the three-dimensional visualization technique. After the disease part of the patient is scanned by the CT device, the 3D whole view will be set up based on the 3D reconstruction module of the system. TCut a part is the usually used function for doctors in the real surgery. A curve will be created on the 3D space; and some points can be added on the curve automatically or manually. The position of the point can change the shape of the cut curves. The curve can be adjusted by controlling the points. If the result of the cut function is not satisfied, all the operation can be cancelled to restart. The flexible virtual surgery gives more convenience to the real surgery. Contrast to the existing medical image process system, the virtual surgery system is added to the system, and the virtual surgery can be plotted for a lot of times, till the doctors have enough confidence to start the real surgery. Because the virtual surgery system can give more 3D information of the disease part, some difficult surgery can be discussed by the expert doctors in different city via internet. It is a useful function to understand the character of the disease part, thus to decrease the surgery risk.
