The insertion of distal locking screws is a difficult task in intra-medullary (IM) nailing operations of long bones and contributes a significant proportion to the overall operating time. The current technique to insert these screws uses numerous flu...

The use of the C-arm fluoroscope for surgical navigation in various Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery Systems (CAOS) has been an important success of research into CAOS technology. To use the fluoroscope for quantitative surgical navigation invol... Read More about A phantom based approach to fluoroscopic navigation for orthopaedic surgery.

Recovery of distal hole axis in intramedullary nail trajectory planning (2002)
Journal Article
Zhu, Y., Phillips, R., Griffiths, J. G., Viant, W., Mohsen, A., & Bielby, M. (2002). Recovery of distal hole axis in intramedullary nail trajectory planning. Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part H: Journal of Engineering in Medicine, 216(5), 323-332. doi:10.1243/09544110260216595

In intramedullary nail (IMN) surgical operations, one of the main efforts for surgeons is to find the axes of two distal holes. Two distal holes on an IMN, which are inside the intramedullary canal of a patient's femur, can only be seen in a lateral...
