The dataset comprises four individual datasets taken from 500+ gynecologic laparoscopic surgeries for the task of automatic content analysis. The individual collections contain image classes depicting general surgical actions, anatomical structures, conducted actions on specific anatomy as well as examples of differing amounts of visible instruments:
Cutting (high frequency)
Suction and Irrigation
|Surgical Actions||Anatomical Structures||Actions on Anatomy||Instrument Count|
|Suction & Irrigation||3036||Uterus||938||Suturing (Uterus)||232||0 Instr.||5100|
|Suturing||12914||Ovary||1162||Suturing (Ovary)||196||1 Instr.||5206|
|Cutting (C)||1185||Oviduct||195||Suturing (Vagina)||263||2 Instr.||5856|
|Cutting (HF)||3752||Liver||138||Suturing (Other)||338||3 Instr.||5271|
