Special Issue Introduction

Over the past decade, enhanced preoperative imaging and visualization, improved delineation of the complex anatomical structures of the hepatobiliary and pancreas, and intra-operative technological advances have helped deliver the hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery with increased safety and better postoperative outcomes. Artificial intelligence (AI) has a major role to play in 3D visualization, virtual simulation, augmented reality that helps in the training of surgeons and the future delivery of conventional, and robotic hepatobiliary and pancreatic (HPB) surgery; artificial neural networks and machine learning has the potential to revolutionize individualized patient care during the preoperative imaging, and postoperative surveillance.

The goal of this special issue “Role of Artificial Intelligence in HPB Surgery” is to provide up-to-date evidence-based literature as well as expert-guided practice to understand the current status of artificial intelligence application in the Hepatopancreatobiliary surgery, different advanced technical procedures, and future development of this field. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
1. 3D visualization and AR in liver surgery;
2. Robotic Pancreatoduodenectomy education;
3. Using Deep Learning to improve surgical safety during cholecystectomy;
4. Machine Learning for Prediction of Postoperative Complications after HPB Surgery;
5. Augmented reality to detect “missing” colorectal liver metastases;
6. Applying AI to big data in HPB surgery.
