Endoscopic disc surgery requires a process of inserting a guide-needle to the target lumbar disc. And the insertion path is manually planned by drawing lines on the patient's skin while monitoring the fluoroscopic view of the lumbar. Such operative procedure inevitably exposes both surgeon and patient to the fluoroscopic radiation emitted from c-arm for a long time. To reduce the radiation exposure time, this study proposes a computer assisted operative planning method implemented by using computer vision and…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
