Research Project

Image Processing CT Reconstruction to Assist Ankle Syndesmosis Fixation Surgery?

The objective of this research project is to assist in creating a data set of digitally reconstructed radiographs of the ankle. Using MATLAB and image processing techniques, CT stacks of the ankle will be segmented for the tibia and fibula. The segmented tibia and fibula will be manipulated in 3D space then reconstructed to create a new CT stack with predetermined tibia and fibula locations and orientations.
