about this item
The book takes a step-by-step approach to designing and developing various tools for surgeon computer interfaces using the conventional surgical set-up. Tracking of surgical tools is defined as the key component for developing such interfaces. Using a theoretical basis, the book presents practical implementation for developing visual tracking of surgical tools. It also shows how such tracking results can be further integrated as a part of image guided, surgical navigation. It offers designers of such tracking systems a number of methodologies which can be explored and synthesized for various stages of the surgical automation process.
