Title: SYSTEMS, METHODS AND DEVICES TO SCAN 3D SURFACES FOR INTRA-OPERATIVE LOCALIZATION
Abstract:
Systems and methods are described herein to generate a 3D surface scan of a surface profile of a patient's anatomy. The 3D surface scan may be generated by reflections of structured light off the surface profile of the anatomy. The 3D surface scan may be used during intra-operative surgical navigation by a localization system. Optionally, a pre-operative medical image may also be registered to the localization system or used to enhance the 3D surface scan.
