The conference paper “Automatic Path Planning for Safe Guide Pin Insertion in PCL Reconstruction Surgery by Florian Kordon presents a time-saving pathway to optimize drill positioning in ligament surgery.

Therefore, anatomical features are extracted from X-ray images using deep learning techniques immediately during surgery. This shortens surgery time to a minimum as the surgeon does not have to extract the geometry from the image data by hand.

Florian Kordon works at the Pattern Recognition Lab, his supervisor is Andreas Maier. The original publication can be found here.
