Subject: Ultrasound Imaging for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery.

Responsibilities: Mechatronical systems software, that determines and verifies the calibration matrix of ultrasound probes, which is used to transform the coordinates of registered points within the ultrasound image to the 3D-coordinates of the tracking system. The work is done to conform to European (TÜV,CE) and American (FDA) quality regulations.

Benefit: The company is able to use the ultrasound probe for their computer assisted surgery system. The company can prove the validity of the Calibration Matrix, because the software is validated in terms of FDA regulations.

Tools and Techology: Visual C++ 2003, MFC, CVS, Ultrasound Image Processing, Control of Step Motors
