Advanced Visuohaptic Surgical Planning for Trauma Surgery

2014-07-23 21:11:00 | BioPortfolio


This study proposes to develop a computer-based software tool that will allow surgeons to plan and simulate surgery for patients with jaw and facial trauma.


The proposed tool will allow surgeons from different specialties to simulate, plan and iterate on complex procedures based on individual patient data in 3-D from a CT scan. The software will allow surgeons to both see and feel the results of their interventions - for example, the quality of the bite or bone alignment of a reconstructed jaw following severe trauma - before the actual surgery, leading to better planning, fewer errors, shortened surgery time and improved outcomes for the patients. The purpose of this study is the evaluation of a visuohaptic planning system for trauma surgery that is based on interactive manipulation of CT data.
