Statistical shape models using a principal-component analysis are inadequate for studying shapes that are in non-linear manifolds. Principal tangent components use a matrix Lie group that maps a non-linear manifold to a corresponding linear tangent space. Computations that are performed on the tangent space of the manifold use linear statistics to analyze(More)
BACKGROUND One of the challenges in natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is spatial orientation. The Queen's NOTES group has devised a novel method of orientation by using a magnetic device that passes within an endoscope channel allowing for 3-dimensional imaging of the shape and orientation of the endoscope. OBJECTIVE To assess the(More)
Hip resurfacing is a surgical option for osteoarthritis young and active patients. Early failures has been reported due to improper implant placement. Computer-assisted surgery is a promising avenue for more successful procedures. This paper presents a novel automatic surgical planning for computer-assisted hip resurfacing procedures. The plan defined the(More)
One marker for early-onset hip arthritis is femoral acetabular impingement. The current standard way of quantifying impingement is manual calculation of anatomical measures on plain radiographs, including the α-angle. Such measurements are user-dependent and prone to error. We provided a robust computational alternative and proposed using numerical fitting(More)
We present a quantitative model to analyze the detrimental effects of for edema on the quality of prostate brachytherapy implants We account for both tissue expansion and implant migration by mapping intra-operative ultrasound and post-implant CT. We pre-process the ultrasound with a phase congruency filter, and map it to the volume CT using a B-spline(More)
