The problem of providing surgical navigation using image overlays on the operative scene can be split into four main tasks-calibration of the optical system; registration of preoperative images to the patient; system and patient tracking, and display using a suitable visualization scheme. To achieve a convincing result in the magnified microscope view a very high alignment accuracy is required. The authors have simulated an entire image overlay system to establish the most significant sources… CONTINUE READING
