3D simulation of human anatomy and surgery intervention are actively implemented nowadays in medical care and higher education. On the basis of recent advances in surgery modeling and augmented reality there was developed a new solution for surgery assistance in real time. The solution consists of three modules: (1) preoperative planning; (2) 3D imaging; and (3) surgery navigation. New simulation models and algorithms were introduced for surgery focused visualization and decision-making support. The developments were successfully probated at clinics of Samara State Medical University for a number of medical cases. This paper describes the details of the proposed solution and its implementation in practice.
