Surgical interfaces are used for the interpretation and quantification of the patient information, and for the presentation of an integrated workflow where all available data are combined to enable optimal treatments. Human factors research provides a systematic approach to design user interfaces with safety, accuracy, satisfaction and comfort. One of the human factors research called user-centered design approach is used to develop a surgical interface for pre-operative planning of cryoablation of a kidney tumor. Two experiments of a simulated cryoablation of a tumor task have been performed with surgeons to evaluate the proposed surgical interface using subjective (questionnaires) and objective (eye tracking) methods to obtain the best surgical interface configuration.
