The main goal of this group is to be able to employ Scopic data as non-invasive intra-operative sensors using vision techniques.
History and Achievements
Registration of endoscopic video to preoperative Data facilitates high-precision surgery. The goal of this group is to be able to accurately track the location of the endoscope in real-time and thus be able to determine endoscope location within the sinus passage. The advantages to being able to do real-time visual tracking are quite substantial as current tool tracking systems for surgeries require additional equipment beyond the endoscope camera that are subject to line-of-sight issue or electro-magnetic distortion depending on the modality of tracking use.
