Abstract

Purpose

Image-guided surgery (IGS) for otological procedures requires minimal invasiveness and a high degree of accuracy. We have recently developed a noninvasive registration method, the Surface Template-Assisted Marker Positioning (STAMP) method, which uses a rigid template of the surface of the temporal bone. However, the STAMP method is not applicable when the bony surface is not exposed, such as in endoscopic surgery. Thus, we extended our research to apply the STAMP method onto the skin and tested its feasibility in this study.

Methods

We designed a phantom made of a rigid box and soft material for the study. The target registration error (TRE) was measured at preset measuring points in the phantom. We modified the STAMP method to be applicable for use on the skin around the ears (S-STAMP). The same phantom was also registered using the conventional, manually scanned surface matching method. We compared the TRE after the different registration methods.

Results

The TRE after the S-STAMP registration method was significantly smaller than that of the conventional surface matching method at all error measurement points in the phantom. However, the TRE after the S-STAMP registration method was significantly larger than that of paired point registration using invasive fiducial markers.

Conclusions

The S-STAMP method using a rigid template on the soft surface yields a significantly smaller TRE than that of conventional, manually scanned surface matching registration. This strategy provides an alternative option to improve the accuracy of IGS without loading patients with additional invasive procedures.
