Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Over the last decade Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) has emerged particularly in the area of minimally invasive Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR) surgery. Image registration is an important aspect in all computer assisted surgeries which is a process of developing a spatial relationship between pre-operative data, such as Computerised Tomography (CT) scans or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans and the physical patient in the operation theatre. It allows the surgeon to visualise the 3D pre-operative scan data in-relation to the patient's anatomy in the operating theatre.
