The availability of high-resolution, magnified, and relatively noise-free endoscopic images in a small workspace, 4-10 cm from the endoscope tip, opens up the possibility of using the endoscope as a tracking tool. We are developing a hybrid navigation system in which image-analysis-based 2D-3D tracking is combined with optoelectronic tracking (Optotrak) for computer-assisted navigation in laparoscopic ventral spine surgeries. Initial results are encouraging and confirm the ability of the endoscope to serve as a tracking tool in surgical navigation where sub-millimetric accuracy is mandatory.
