Abstract

Accessing medical records is an integral part of neurosurgical procedures in the Operating Room (OR). Gestural interfaces can help reduce the risks for infections by allowing the surgical staff to browse Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) without touch. The main objectives of this work are to: a) Elicit gestures from neurosurgeons to analyze their preferences, b) Develop heuristics for gestural interfaces, and c) Produce a lexicon that maximizes surgeons' preferences.
