Abstract

Despite a strong evidence of the clinical and economic benefits of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for many common surgical procedures, there is a gross underutilization of MIS in many US hospitals, potentially due to its steep learning curve. Intraoperative videos captured using a camera inserted into the body during MIS procedures are emerging as an invaluable resource for MIS education, skill assessment and quality assurance. However, these videos often have a duration of several hours and there is a pressing need for automated tools to help surgeons quickly find key semantic segments of interest within MIS videos. In this paper, we present a novel integrated approach for facilitating content-based retrieval of video segments that are semantically similar to a query video within a large collection of MIS videos. We use state-of-theart deep 3D convolutional neural network (CNN) models pre-trained on large public video classification datasets to extract spatiotemporal features from MIS video segments and employ an iterative query refinement (IQR) strategy where in a support vector machine (SVM) classifier trained online based on relevance feedback from the user is used to refine the search results iteratively. We show that our method outperforms the state-of-the-art on the SurgicalActions160 dataset containing 160 video clips of typical surgical actions in gynecologic MIS procedures.
