The extraction and description of keypoints as salient image parts has a long tradition within processing and analysis of 2D images. Nowadays, 3D data gains more and more importance. This paper discusses the benefits and limitations of keypoints for the task of fusing multiple 3D point clouds. For this goal, several combinations of 3D keypoint detectors and(More)
Total hip replacement is an often-performed orthopedic surgical procedure; the amount of procedures undertaken will increase since our life expectancy is growing. In order to optimize function, hip biomechanics should be restored to as near normal as possible. The goal of this pilot study was to determine whether or not it is feasible to compute the(More)
The ability to quantify internal stress distributions within the musculoskel-etal system is of particular importance for joint arthroplasty in orthopaedics and subsequent outcome analyses. Musculoskeletal analysis and model-ing (MM), which traditionally used rather theoretic algorithms and applications , has now developed to the point that numerically(More)
We have developed a novel, computer-assisted operation method for minimal-invasive total hip replacement (THR) following the concept of "femur first/combined anteversion," which incorporates various aspects of performing a functional optimization of the prosthetic stem and cup position (CAS FF). The purpose of this study is to assess whether the hip joint(More)
In digital investigations it is important to document the examination of a computer system with as much detail as possible. Allthough never designed for digital investigations, many experts use the software script to record their whole terminal session while analyzing a target system. We analyze script's deficiencies and present the design and(More)
