We present a liver surgery simulator using full-HD autostereoscopic displays. We have developed two kinds of autostereoscopic displays to keep on showing a full-HD 3D image to a viewer who moves freely in front of the display. One is a 3D display based on time-division multiplexing directional backlight and the other is a 3D display based on time-division multiplexing parallax barrier. We have applied the developed simulator using the 3D displays with different specifications to the education of medical students. The result of the questionnaires suggests that 3D visualization is effective and that reduction of crosstalk plays an important role to promote medical use of 3D displays.
