OBJECTIVE We recently developed a new noninvasive registration method for image-guided otologic surgery (STAMP method). We investigated the benefit and potential drawback of our new method in clinical application and tested the feasibility of routine image-guided surgery. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case review. SETTING Tertiary referral university(More)
This work proposes an image-guided robotic Mastoidectomy. A surgical navigation software was developed to guide the robot without damaging the critical area. A forbidden-region virtual fixture is implemented for safety. A human-robot collaboration control mode is used to allow the human intervention during surgery, to compensate tremor by operator, and to(More)
PURPOSE We developed a surgical navigation system that warns the surgeon with auditory and visual feedback to protect the facial nerve with real-time monitoring of the safe region during drilling. METHODS Warning navigation modules were developed and integrated into a free open source software platform. To obtain high registration accuracy, we used a(More)
