Abstract: Ever since the marriage of the computer and imaging devices by Hounsfield in the early 1970s, dramatic changes have occurred in medical practice. Not only has the development of CT, MRI, and other computerized scans increased our ability to diagnose diseases and injuries, but computerization has changed the way we surgeons practice. Improving the accuracy of surgery and decreasing the invasiveness of surgery are two goals that have been furthered by using computer software and hardware. The computerized tools that surgeons can employ include fabricating STL models, 3-D planning, intraoperative navigation, fabrication of pre-formed implants, fabrication of patient-specific implants, and the use of intraoperative CT scanning. This talk will focus on how these tools can help us achieve not only a more accurate result but with less invasive surgery.
