This paper presents a novel approach for a position verification system in medical applications. By replacing the already existing cross line laser projectors with galvo- or MEMS-based projectors and utilizing the surveillance cameras, a self-calibration of the system is performed and surface acquisition for positioning verification is demonstrated. The functionality is shown by analyzing the radii of calibration spheres and determining the quality of the captured surface with respect to a reference model. The paper focuses on the demonstration with one pair of camera and projector but can also be extended to a multi-camera-projector system, as present in treatment rooms. Compared to other systems, this approach does not need external hardware and is thus space and cost efficient.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
