Validation of anatomical landmarks-based registration for image-guided surgery: An in-vitro study


Sun, Yi; Luebbers, Heinz-Theo; Agbaje, Jimoh Olubanwo; Schepers, Serge; Vrielinck, Luc; Lambrichts, Ivo; Politis, Constantinus (2013). Validation of anatomical landmarks-based registration for image-guided surgery: An in-vitro study. Journal of Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery, 41(6):522-526.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Perioperative navigation is a recent addition to orthognathic surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of anatomical landmarks-based registration. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-five holes (1.2 mm diameter) were drilled in the surface of a plastic skull model, which was then scanned using a SkyView cone beam computed tomography scanner. DICOM files were imported into BrainLab ENT 3.0.0 to make a surgical plan. Six anatomical points were selected for registration: the infraorbital foramena, the anterior nasal spine, the crown tips of the upper canines, and the mesial contact point of the upper incisors. Each registration was performed five times by two separate observers (10 times total). RESULTS: The mean target registration error (TRE) in the anterior maxillary/zygomatic region was 0.93 ± 0.31 mm (p < 0.001 compared with other anatomical regions). The only statistically significant inter-observer difference of mean TRE was at the zygomatic arch, but was not clinically relevant. CONCLUSION: With six anatomical landmarks used, the mean TRE was clinically acceptable in the maxillary/zygomatic region. This registration technique may be used to access occlusal changes during bimaxillary surgery, but should be used with caution in other anatomical regions of the skull because of the large TRE observed.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
