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. Coauthored by a practicing otolaryngologist with a doctorate in bioengineering and a computer scientist with a doctorate in physics whose career has focused on error analysis in IGS, the book includes chapters on history, CT and MRI, tracking, registration, error analysis, evidence-based practices, FDA-cleared IGS systems, and future applications, as well as more than 90 full-color figures.
