Abriss: We describe the combination of a robotic surgical microscope and an Augmented Reality (AR) for intraoperative navigation. The virtual elements of the AR are segmented from preoperative images. Both virtual and real environments can be overlaid intraoperatively. This simplifies the localization of critical structures even if they are located beneath the surface of the tissue. The robotic microscope can automatically focus crucial structures taking the spatial relations of the AR into considera-tion. Such targets can easily be defined using the virtual environment. The variation of about 1mm, which results from overlaying virtual and real environment, is tolerable for most surgical interventions.
