Implementation and test of algorithms for the registration of intra-operative 2D X-Ray images acquired with a C-arm and pre-operative 3D CT scans.

Design of a graphical user interface to allow a doctor the visualization of intra-operative and pre-operative images and planning of a robotic percutaneous vertebroplaty procedure. The plan of the intervention is subsequently sent to the robot that will position the tools accordingly.
