Anatomy of the murine and human cochlea visualized at the cellular level by synchrotron-radiation-based micro-computed tomography
Diseases of the hearing organ and impairment affect a significant fraction of population. Therefore, the hearing organ embedded as a helical structure in the cochlea within the hardest human osseousExpand
Accuracy evaluation of initialization-free registration for intraoperative 3D-navigation
These results will allow further minimization of human interaction in the planning phase for intraoperative 3D-navigation, by allowing to automatically create surface patches for registration purposes, ultimately allowing to build an initialization-free, fully automatic registration procedure for navigated Ear-, Nose-, Throat- (ENT) surgery.

[Automatic registration of patients with A-mode ultrasound for computer-assisted surgery. Laboratory proof of concept].
It is demonstrated that A-mode ultrasound allows an accurate 3D surface profile of the os occipitale to be created which can be reliably registered on preoperative patient CT data and can be integrated into the intraoperative setup. Expand
Probe versus microscope: a comparison of different methods for image-to-patient registration
Comparisons of the performance of a microscope relative to a conventional probe-based approach with different registration methods showed that a probe used for registration and navigation achieves lower TREs compared using a microscope. Expand
[Physical methods (ultrasound) and disinfecting agents for decontaminating the water in poultry meat processing].
In vitro studies revealed that the use of ultra sound in the decontamination of cooling water and poultry meat surface did not produce the necessary effect and the iodofor preparations inkosan and yomil S as well as the agents chalamide and chloramine added in fixed concentrations to the water in cooling vats were not shown to be able to inactivate Salmonella organisms on the surface of experimentally contaminated poultry carcasses.

Visual display for surgical targeting: concepts and usability study
The stand-alone and multi-modal versions of the proposed interface outperformed cross-sectional views-only navigation in both quantitative and qualitative evaluations and has potential to accurately navigate users toward the target with less distraction and workload. Expand

Manual paired‐point registration for navigated ENT‐surgery is prone to human errors; automatic surface registration is often caught in local minima.
