Implicit planar curve and surface fitting to a set of scattered points plays an important role in solving a wide variety of problems occurring in computer graphics modelling, computer graphics animation, and computer assisted surgery. The fitted impl... Read More

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... Read More
