PURPOSE Orthopedic fractures are often fixed using metal implants. The correct positioning of cylindrical implants such as surgical screws, rods and guide wires is highly important. Intraoperative 3D imaging is often used to ensure proper implant placement. However, 3D image interaction is time-consuming and requires experience. We developed an automatic(More)
PURPOSE The assessment of intra-operatively acquired volumetric data is a difficult and often time-consuming task, which demands a new set of skills from the surgeons. In the case of orthopedic surgeries such as the treatment of calcaneal fractures, the correctness of the reduction of the bone fragments can be verified with the help of C-arm CT volumetric(More)
PURPOSE In orthopedic surgeries, it is important to avoid intra-articular implant placements, which increase revision rates and the risk of arthritis. In order to support the intraoperative assessment and correction of surgical implants, we present an automatic detection approach using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). METHODS Multiple active shape(More)
PURPOSE With the help of an intra-operative mobile C-arm CT, medical interventions can be verified and corrected, avoiding the need for a post-operative CT and a second intervention. An exact adjustment of standard plane positions is necessary for the best possible assessment of the anatomical regions of interest but the mobility of the C-arm causes the(More)
