Medical surgical protocols include the need of access to high precission imaging system such as CT, and latter be able to use this information during the surgical act..
The closest than critical organs such as spine are close to the surgical region, precission medicine becomes a must to have.
One of the major contributions of our group was to provide enhanced methods for 3D information related to medical devices, using positioning of all related tools associated to the patient.
Why 3D information is important?
The obvious reason is to have a more precisse determination of the risks associated to the patient but there are many others.
- Diferent morphologies (obesity, or diseases such scolioisis)
- Diferent sizes, in humans paedriatic vs adults, domestic animals have a wider range of sizes.
Lession segmentation helps to several clinical issues associated to diferent clinical aspects of this kind of analysis.
- Volume determination of the lession
- Disease evolution
