Intra-Operative Registration for Stereotactic Procedures Driven by a Combined Biomechanical Brain and CSF Model
During stereotactic neurosurgery, the brain shift could affect the accuracy of the procedure. However, this deformation of the brain is not often considered in the pre-operative planning step or intra-operatively, and may lead to surgical complications, side effects or ineffectiveness. In this paper, we present a method to update the pre-operative planning based on a physical simulation of the brain shift. Because the simulation requires unknown input parameters, the method relies on a parameter estimation process to compute the intracranial state that matches the partial data taken from intra-operative modalities. The simulation is based on a biomechanical model of the brain and the cerebro-spinal fluid. In this paper, we show on an anatomical atlas that the method is numerically sound.
