Automatic analysis of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) videos captured by the endoscope has the potential to drive new solutions for safer surgeries. Reproducible training programs, objective and transparent assessment systems and navigation tools to assist surgeons and improve patient safety can be developed by means of the analysis of video sequences [1]. Surgical video sequences provide useful information about the position of instruments and organs, surgical maneuvers, measurements of distances or even an approximate 3D reconstruction of the surgical scene. Endoscopic video images are an always available source of information and can be used without adding extra technological components in the operating room (OR). Cognitive and motor training can benefit from the use of video images captured by the endoscope since they can be useful multimedia didactic resources [2]. Early familiarization with the view present in the operating rooms can shorten learning curves of trainees. Existing video repositories appear bound to web technologies for cognitive on-line training, enabling anytime-anywhere education. Endoscopic video analysis can also be useful for assessment of surgeon?s skills. Motion analysis of the laparoscopic instruments? movements has been proven to be a relevant source of information on psychomotor performance [3]. Video-based tracking can offer an alternative to sensor-based systems to this end, which are usually bulky and may modify the instruments? ergonomics.
