Image-Guided Surgery

Fundamentals and Clinical Applications in Otolaryngology


Image-guided surgery (IGS) is the term used for surgical procedures in which the surgeon employs tracked surgical instruments in conjunction with preoperative or intraoperative images in order to navigate during the procedure. It is part of the wider field of computer-assisted surgery. In the field of otolaryngology, IGS is primarily used by rhinologists during sinus surgery and by skull-base surgeons often in conjunction with neurosurgeons. While widely utilized, surgeons' understanding of the technology is often inadequate to appreciate its strengths and weaknesses.

Image-Guided Surgery: Fundamentals and Clinical Applications in Otolaryngology was written to overcome this knowledge gap to educate practicing surgeons as well as provide an introduction to the field for engineers. Co-authored by a practicing otolaryngologist with a PhD in bioengineering and a PhD physicist and computer scientist whose career has focused on error analysis in IGS, the book includes 98 figures and chapters on History, Imaging, Tracking, Registration, Error Analysis, Evidence-based Practices, FDA-cleared IGS Systems, and Future Applications.


I found it very well written and exhaustive in its analysis... The chapters are well defined and flow appropriately for the topic, maintaining their focus throughout.

It taught me a lot about a highly complex subject that, to be honest, I thought would be way out of my league. At the end of each chapter I was able to say, "Wow, now I understand that!" Even better was that I was able to impart this knowledge to others, demonstrating that the learning was active.
