  • Causa
    In the ‘fluoro match registration’ function when used in combination with a digitally integrated c-arm, the software algorithm may not find an adequate match between the intraoperatively acquired 2d fluoroscopic images and the preoperative ct or other compatible 3d datasets. due to a software anomaly the intraoperative 2d fluoroscopic images are not correctly processed, causing a low contrast of the images potentially resulting in the software algorithm being unable to find a correct match between the low contrast 2d fluoroscopic images and the segmented area of the 3d dataset. alternatively, it may incorrectly match the segmented area to the spine reference x-clamp. for an incorrect match, the display of instruments by the navigation system would be shifted compared to the actual patient anatomy. if this is not detected during user verification, deviation of position information could impact clinical decisions which could lead to ineffective treatment, serious injury or patient death.
