3D free-hand ultrasound to register anatomical landmarks at the pelvis and localize the hip joint center in lean and obese individuals.

Sci Rep 2021 05 20;11(1):10650. Epub 2021 May 20.

Laboratory of Gait and Movement Analysis, Orthopedic Hospital Vienna-Speising, Vienna, Austria.

3D free-hand ultrasound (3DFUS) is becoming increasingly popular to assist clinical gait analysis because it is cost- and time-efficient and does not expose participants to radiation. The aim of this study was to evaluate its reliability in localizing the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) at the pelvis and the hip joint centers (HJC). Additionally, we evaluated its accuracy to get a rough estimation of the potential to use of 3DFUS to segment bony surface. Read More

Minimally invasive registration for computer-assisted orthopedic surgery: combining tracked ultrasound and bone surface points via the P-IMLOP algorithm.

Int J Comput Assist Radiol Surg 2015 Jun 18;10(6):761-71. Epub 2015 Apr 18.

Department of Computer Science, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, 21218, USA,

Purpose: We present a registration method for computer-assisted total hip replacement (THR) surgery, which we demonstrate to improve the state of the art by both reducing the invasiveness of current methods and increasing registration accuracy. A critical element of computer-guided procedures is the determination of the spatial correspondence between the patient and a computational model of patient anatomy. The current method for establishing this correspondence in robot-assisted THR is to register points intraoperatively sampled by a tracked pointer from the exposed proximal femur and, via auxiliary incisions, from the distal femur.

Ultrasound-based registration of the pelvic coordinate system in the lateral position using symmetry for total hip replacement.

Biomed Tech (Berl) 2012 May 16;57(4):239-48. Epub 2012 May 16.

Helmholtz Institute for Biomedical Engineering, RWTH Aachen University, Germany.

In total hip replacement, patient placement in the lateral position is preferred by many surgeons. However, it complicates registration of the so-called pelvic coordinate system that is the standard reference for surgeons to measure cup orientation. This coordinate system comprises the anterior pelvic plane and the mid-sagittal plane, and it is conventionally registered on the basis of bony anatomical landmarks including the left and the right anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS).
