In Total Hip Replacement (THR) procedures, misalignment of the acetabular component can lead to dislocation and impingement. For the successful alignment of acetabular component, precise estimation of pelvic anatomical coordinate system is necessary. Conventional navigation systems use CT scan or fluoroscopy, or involve implanted bone fiducials or invasive probing of bony landmarks to locate the anatomical coordinate. In this paper, an ultrasound-based approach is proposed that exploits prior… CONTINUE READING
