A new method for fluoroscopic tracking of a proximal bone fragment in femoral fracture reduction is presented. The proposed method combines 2-D and 3-D image registration from single-view fluoroscopy with tracking of the head center position of the proximal femoral fragment to improve the accuracy of fluoroscopic registration without the need for repeated manual adjustment of the C-arm as required in stereo-view registrations. Kinematic knowledge of the hip joint, which has a positional correspondence with the femoral head center and the pelvis acetabular center, allows the position of the femoral fragment to be determined from pelvis tracking. The stability of the proposed method with respect to fluoroscopic image noise and the desired continuity of the fracture reduction operation is demonstrated, and the accuracy of tracking is shown to be superior to that achievable by single-view image registration, particularly in depth translation.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in most Asian countries due to the high prevalence of hepatitis B viral infection.1 Surgical resection and liver transplantation are regarded as the main curative treatments for HCC. Many patients, however, are not eligible for resection due to locally advanced tumour, underlying liver cirrhosis with suboptimal liver reserve or metastatic disease on presentation.1. Puppala et al2 concisely summarise the modern image-guided therapy options for patients with advanced HCC, such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA), microwave ablation, percutaneous ethanol ablation (PEI), cryoablation, transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE) and yttrium-90 radioembolisation. However, most of these treatments are palliative in nature and the overall survival of HCC patients with locally advanced disease remains poor. The outcomes of these image-guided therapies depend on accurate tumour staging, the position of the tumour in the liver, ...
Precise motion and tracking of medical equipment during surgical procedures is a fundamental concern for Stryker navigational camera systems. Before shipment and delivery, every system must be tested and calibrated for performance and accuracy. The current method uses one of the few available coordinate measuring machines that are very costly and take significant time to sequentially move to appropriate locations enabling accurate measurements. The new calibration system developed uses an alternate method. A three-dimensional array of precisely positioned infrared LEDs are excited one at a time by the calibration system in coordination with the camera system so that accurate location and distance calibration can be performed quickly and efficiently. This problem is solved by using a Tracker PCB, Transceiver PCB, and software QUI created by the design team to complete these requirements as defined by the design team and team sponsor. Developmental tests were executed during the design process to verify

The magnetic fields are generated from a plurality of locations and, in one embodiment of the invention, enable both the orientation and location of a single coil sensor to be determined. The present invention thus finds application in many areas where the use of prior art sensors comprising two or more mutually perpendicular coils is inappropriate.
Fluorescence guided surgery (FGS), (also called Fluorescence image-guided surgery, or in the specific case of tumor resection, fluorescence guided resection) is a medical imaging technique used to detect fluorescently labelled structures during surgery. Similarly to standard image-guided surgery, FGS has the purpose of guiding the surgical procedure and providing the surgeon of real time visualization of the operating field. When compared to other medical imaging modalities, FGS is cheaper and superior in terms of resolution and number of molecules detectable. As a drawback, penetration depth is usually very poor (100 μm) in the visible wavelengths, but it can reach up to 1-2 cm when excitation wavelengths in the near infrared are used. FGS is performed using imaging devices with the purpose of providing real time simultaneous information from color reflectance images (bright field) and fluorescence emission. One or more light sources are used to excite and illuminate the sample. Light is ...
Unlike other surgical navigation systems the NaviPro system is "Image Free." No CT, MRI or fluoroscopic imaging is needed. All data is acquired by simple and quick intraoperative registration techniques. Trackers are attached to the pelvis and proximal femur* prior to dislocating the hip. They are then utilized throughout the case to monitor the relative position of the femur and pelvis in order to provide you with accurate feedback on leg length and offset changes.. A unique table positioner* orients the patient and provides touch points that allow accurate definition of the anterior pelvic plane. This pelvic plane becomes the reference for true anatomic cup anteversion and abduction positioning.. A short series of descriptive screen images walk the user through the simple steps required to "navigate" the hip. A printout of the relevant results is available at the end of the surgical case for inclusion with the patient chart ...

The initialization of an inertial navigation system is performed using information obtained from an image of an object. Positional and orientational information about the object in a global reference frame and positional and orientational information about the camera relative to the object are obtained from the image. Positional and orientational information for the camera in the global reference frame is determined along with a transformation matrix between inertial sensor reference frame and a navigation coordinate frame. The inertial navigation system is initialized using the positional and orientational information for the camera, the transformation matrix and the velocity of the camera when the object was imaged, i.e., zero. Using the initialized data with measurements from the inertial sensors the position of the mobile platform may be updated during navigation and provided, e.g., on a digital map. Inertial navigation errors may be corrected using information obtained from images of different

The state-of-the-art in retinal ophthalmic surgery involves using micrometre-diameter tools to perform delicate diabetic and scar related delaminations or energy delivery to leaky vessels on the surface of the retina. Delivery of novel therapeutics, such as stem cells or genes, requires access to specific subretinal locations with precision on the order of micrometers. Such precision is at the limits of human capabilities, and, hence, these interventions would benefit both from mechatronics and image-guidance. A co-manipulated robotic system operating under OCT guidance would facilitate the delivery of therapeutics exactly at the desired locations. Further, with force and pressure sensing capabilities, this system would be able to help regulate tool/tissue interaction to safe levels, and help control the volume of therapeutics delivered.. The proposed integrated system - with clear emphasis on ophthalmological surgical tools - will find extensive applications in treatment of diseases such as ...

The Postural Respiration course has a lot of manual techniques where the therapist helps the patient find neutrality. These arent always necessary to use. Always go to non-manual techniques first when treating someone because they are stronger teachers. This is just like how you remember more when you perform an activity as opposed to listening to a lecture.. In a non-manual technique, we can use something like a wall to give the patient a reference. With manual techniques, my hands become the reference. Now Im asking myself, "How will I give you a reference?". One thing that Ive been using with a lot more success lately is the cue "knees forward" instead of telling them to tilt their pelvis. This helps reduce abdominal tone for the repositioning techniques. Ive also tried using more verbal cues so that they can make their own representations of the activity they are doing. It doesnt work all the time, but it sticks better.. ...

A navigation system generally determines a location of a portion of a first medical instrument relative to a patient. The navigation system generally includes a multi-configuration tracking array that extends from the first medical instrument. A plurality of tracking devices can be positioned on the multi-configuration tracking array. At least one of the tracking devices changes to define at least a first condition and a second condition. A tracking system detects the tracking devices and relates a change between the first condition and the second condition with a change between at least a first instrument configuration and a second instrument configuration.

Stability of the knee is a complex issue and involves ligaments that behave differently on the medial and lateral side. Correct positioning of the components and adequate soft-tissue balancing are critical steps in successful total knee arthroplasty1. A total knee prosthesis that is implanted "too tightly" may cause limited range of motion and compromise patient satisfaction. A total knee replacement that is implanted "too loosely" will be unstable2. Medial-lateral instability is the most common type of instability and may result from incompetent collateral ligaments, incomplete correction of a preoperative deformity, or incorrect bone cuts3. Separate studies have identified instability as a leading cause of early clinical failure of a primary total knee replacement, resulting in revision within three to five years4,5. ...

SHETTY, GM y MULLAJI, A. Alignment in computer-navigated versus conventional total knee arthroplasty for valgus deformity. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.3, pp.40-46. ISSN 2309-8309.. INTRODUCTION: Significant improvement has been reported in limb alignment and component orientation with computer-navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) especially in varus deformities. Literature is lacking regarding the radiographic results of navigated TKA in valgus knees. This study aims to analyse the radiographic results of navigated TKAs in valgus knees and compare them with results of our conventional technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 120 primary TKAs done for valgus arthritic knees. Fifty-three computer-navigated TKAs (group N) were compared with a control group of 53 conventional TKAs (group C) for coronal and sagittal alignment of the femoral and tibial components on X-ray imaging at the end of two years after surgery. RESULTS: We found no significant difference in ...

Management of neuroendocrine liver metastases is optimized with a multidisciplinary approach that includes medical oncology, surgery, and interventional radiology. This allows for various treatment options to be discussed by subspecialists and a comprehensive treatment plan employed. Image-guided therapies, namely thermal ablation and transarterial embolization, are used both as an adjunct to surgery and when surgery is not a viable option.4 These techniques have been shown to be effective for both local tumor control and symptom relief.5 This chapter reviews the various image-guided therapies currently available for NET liver metastases with regard to technique, efficacy, and available outcomes data. In addition, emerging and novel image-guided therapies are also reviewed. ...
Critical to the longevity of an implant is the surgeons ability to restore the mechanical axis while balancing the flexion and extension gaps. Most surgeons accomplish this goal through a combination of measured resection and gap-balancing techniques, with the assistance of intramedullary and extramedullary guides.. Experience has shown that an optimal window exists with respect to the mechanical axis, and that "outliers" are prone to fail at an accelerated rate [1]. Additionally, better alignment is correlated with faster rehabilitation and better outcomes [2,3].. In an effort to limit the number of outliers, patient-specific instrumentation was developed. Using preoperative CT or MRI imaging to determine each particular patients mechanical axis, patient-specific instrumentation aims to improve the predictability and ease of component insertion. This technique has been shown to improve alignment and assist in component sizing [4-8] while providing the added benefits of decreased operative ...
