A platform is presented for holographic visualization and planning of image-guided prostate interventions. Its pipeline includes modules dedicated for MRI segmentation, structure rendering, trajectory planning for biopsy or brachytherapy needles, and the spatial co-registration of the outcomes of these modules for augmented reality holographic rendering. The interface was implemented on a HoloLens smart-glasses enabling gesture and voice activation for interactive selection of the input parameters of any module. The work is motivated by the potential of holographic augmented reality to offer true 3D appreciation of the morphology of the area of the procedure and interactive planning of access trajectories.
