Description

Orthopedic imaging has traditionally relied on ionizing radiation based modalities such as x-ray, fluoroscopy and CT. We are investigating the employment of 3D US as an alternative safer imaging modality for a prospective minimally invasive computer assisted surgery system designed specifically for pre-operative bone fracture assessment and inter-operative guidance in fracture reduction procedures. This work is done in collaboration with the Neuromotor Control Lab and the Robotics and Control Lab at UBC.
