The identification of bone regions for the assistance of temporal bone surgery through analysis of the drill acoustics

Abstract

This paper presents a method to identify the bone regions encountered during a temporal bone dissection. This should aid the otolaryngologist in the identification of anatomical landmarks whilst training and performing surgical procedures. The approach adopts the mel frequency cepstrum coefficients and the Mahalanobis distance metric to indentify the… (More)
