A Repositioning Method of C-Arm using Motion Capture on the Virtual Reality Platform
Currently, the C-Arm X-ray system (C-Arm) is a manually (or partially automated) maneuvered device used to take medical images such as MRI and X-rays during surgery in the operation room. The primary goal of this research is to identify and test a framework for facilitating the repositioning of the C-Arm without hardware modification in an operating room. This will be accomplished by enhancing a data acquisition process using the Vicon motion capture system (Vicon) and virtual reality (VR)-based platforms, as well as improving the repositioning process in C-Arm using image matching techniques such as automatic target acquisition (ATA). Using MATLAB/Simulink the C-Arm will have the ability to acquire data acquisition as well as signal processing to adjust each component of the C-Arm.
