Computer Vision for Hip Replacement Surgery

 

 

 

 

 

As the sole Imaging Engineer for medical device company JointPoint, I developed an image processing framework in C# to auto-place anatomical landmarks in intra-operative fluoroscopy images. Using techniques such as segmentation, adaptive thresholding, and non-maximum suppression edge detection, I created a program to automatically detect the femoral head, femoral canal, acetabulum, greater trochanter, pelvic reference line, and pelvic brim.

This work is being folded into software co-marketed by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Depuy Synthes.
