Abstract

Prostate cancer is the most frequent male cancer and the second cause of male cancer mortality in developed countries. Therefore, it represents a major Public Health issue. During a prostatectomy, the surgeon looks for a compromise between an exhaustive removal of pathologic tissue (to achieve the best carcinogenic prognosis) and the functional consequences linked to a wide excision (i.e.: avoid as much as possible urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction). In this context, the ANR TecSan DEPORRA project regroups French research laboratories (TIMC-IMAG, FEMTO-ST), companies (Endocontrol Medical, VERMON) and hospital departments (CIC-IT, Urology& pathology Department of the Grenoble University Hospital) to bring innovative tools for radical prostatectomy. These tools will provide to the surgeon new information from several imaging modalities (video, fluorescence and US imaging), and combine them in an augmented environment. We believe that this augmented environment will ultimately help the surgeon to perform his surgical gesture "optimally" and will improve the patient's carcinogenic and functional prognosis.
