Real time guidance surgical navigation system for scaphoid fracture fixation

2012/13-2013/14 • $209,350 • PI,CO
Of the more than 300,000 wrist fractures that occur in North America each year, 90% include fracture of the scaphoid, a cashew-shaped small bone. The conventional treatment comprises immobilizing the wrist in a cast for several weeks, until union is detectable on X-ray images. Complications,...

Advanced real-time 3D imaging, planning and navigation of fracture surgery

2011/12-2013/14 • $185,985 • PI,CO
Tremendous advances have occurred in fracture management, due in part to new implants that internally fixate many fractures with minimally invasive techniques. For example, complex femoral fractures are now treated by sophisticated 'locking' nails that require only a few small incisions to...
