Pilot project B “Virtual Simulation of Total Hip Replacement Surgery” refers to a different discipline with different requirements at regard of design and service development procedure, by virtue of human involvement. The implementation incomporates the digital surgery's preperation procedure, from the collection of the medical images (tomography) to the structured study of the surgery based on the medical protocol.
Total Hip Replacement
The main motivation for the ancillary usage of computer systems to arthopaedic surgery is the imperative need for simulation at pre-processing phase, that involves diagnosis, results' evaluation and surgery forplan. The second incentive is the best after-surgery performance in regard to direct results of the surgery, medical treatment and sceduled revisory surgery, if necessary.
The second phase was accomplished via the professional collaboration with chief orthopaedists and it concludes the methodology applied the last decade by the engineering team of the Orthopaedic Clinic of the University Hospital of Ioannina.
