Executive Summary

Drs Ferenc Jolesz and Ron Kikinis of The Brigham and Women's Hospital Surgical Planning Laboratory have been working with Boston-based Visualization Technology (VT) to develop an intra-operative tracking system for sinus surgery. The VT system uses Sun's SPARCstation 5 to overlay the position of an aspirator-probe on three orthogonal CT images together with video from the probe. The standard aspirator is tracked electromagnetically using three sensors on a headset which also registers the data to the CT image.
