Feasibility of A-mode ultrasound based intraoperative registration in computer-aided orthopedic surgery: A simulation and experimental study

Fig 1

The comparison between the clinical registration procedure and simulated registration procedure.

(a) the illustration of clinical registration procedure including measuring ultrasound points from patient and registering them to the pre-operative model. (b) the illustration of simulated registration procedure involving generating the ultrasound point from pre-operative model and transforming them to a new position rigidly, eventually registering those points back to the pre-operative model.
