Computer-Aided Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery

This state-of-the-art reference presents the most recent developments in computer-aided surgery (CAS) for otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery. This text emphasizes the clinical applications of CAS and presents a vision for the integration of CAS into clinical otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery. The scope of this book includes basic CAS principles as well as strategies for the use of CAS in specific procedures. CAS surgical navigation (also known as image-guidance) for sinus surgery is extensively reviewed. Contains a disk showcasing detailed color images of figures displayed in the text! Details the latest applications of CAS, including surgical navigation (and image guidance) for rhinology (sinus surgery), neuro-otology, head and neck surgery, and craniomaxillofacial surgery! Providing new strategies and fundamental principles, Computer-Aided Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery covers ·paradigms for utilizing CAS ·historical perspectives ·registration ·intraoperative magnetic resonance scanner technology ·views for neurosurgery and neuroradiology ·Internet-enabled surgery ·digital imaging ·computer-aided transsphenoidal hypophysectomy ·tumor modeling ·virtual endoscopy and virtual reality simulators ·software-enabled cephalometrics ·computer-aided maxillofacial fracture repair ·new applications under development Discussing critical advances in surgical applications of semiconductor-based technology, Computer-Aided Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery is an invaluable source for otolaryngologists, ENT-subspecialists, head and neck surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons and craniomaxillofacial surgeons, and medical students, residents, and fellows in these disciplines.
