BACKGROUND With the application of optical navigation systems an interruption of the line of sight (LOS) between navigation camera and the patient/instrument can occur. The goal of this work is the clinical evaluation of a newly developed system for automatic adjusting of an optical navigation camera (Navigation Camera Assistant, NCA). NCA is a miniature(More)
This article describes a new interaction device for surgical navigation systems — the so-called navigation mouse system. The idea is to use a tracked instrument of a surgical navigation system like a pointer to control the software. The new interaction system extends existing navigation systems with a microcontroller-unit. The microcontroller-unit(More)
In this article a new navigated drill system for computer assisted ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery is presented. The navigated drill and the microscope probe are part of a surgical navigation system for ENT-surgery. In particular, the accuracy of the new navigated drill is compared to an existing navigated drill experimentally under conditions close to(More)
