This is my plan/ToDo list for the remaining items to be accomplished for the Phase 1, 2, and 3 studies.
Phase 1 - use JointTrack to shape match models of cervical TDR to cadaver data.
Data analyzed for all 3 spines
Presented at SAS 2007
Write up results for publication
Phase 2 - develop and evaluate new metric.
Load CT image data
Load Fluoro image data
Calibrate camera model for DRR generation
Generate DRR using VTK render window (window to image filter)
Implemented 8 existing image metrics, and created a new one by combining 2 previous algorithms
Tune simulated annealing optimizer
Decide on registration scheme (based heavily on ITK concepts)
Assess quality of registration performed with new metric
Phase 3 - use new metric to analyze cadaver kinematic data.
Collected Fluoro and mocap data simultaneously on 3 cadaver cervical spines with a TDR.
Collected CT image data from the 3 cadaver spines.
register CT images to fluoro images
compare results with mocap data
