Biomedical engineering notes – Technologies for assisted surgery

The CAS (Computer Aided Surgery) system: structure and applications. Pre-surgery phase: acquisition and processing of diagnostic images for surgical planning; multimodal fusion of diagnostic images with rigid and non-rigid transformations and extrinsic and intrinsic control points; feature extraction, volumetric reconstruction and rendering in 3-D; planning and surgical simulation. Intra-surgery phase: technologies and methods for localization, navigation and automation in surgery; stereotactic surgery; mapping between reference systems; anatomic calibration techniques; on the organ motion problem; acquisition systems of intra-surgery images; methods of detection of anatomical surfaces; recording techniques of data and intra-surgery images and pre-operators; techniques of modeling and in line compensation of organ motion.
