Abstract

Kidney transplantation is a major surgical intervention and patients undergoing counseling for this procedure do not always fully understand the essentials of this procedure. We present an improved way to facilitate patient education by creating a visual aid that can be used to supplement physician counseling in patients considering kidney transplantation. We used anonymized CT scans and image analysis software to compute anatomical renderings of normal kidney anatomy as well as the anatomical differences in a patient before and after a kidney transplant. These 3D renderings were animated to create a basic educational video explaining the procedure to candidate patients.
