... of the patient’s cranium is reconstructed. A genetic algorithm calculates optimal positions of the marker in order to minimize the target registration error. The fiducial set is shown to the surgeons on the 3D model to help him/her in placement of them. External target case is studied. ( a ) Unoptimized...

... injection, with minimal physiologic disturbance. The design of this device is determined by a morphological optimization process, which searches a discrete mechanical design parameter space, consisting of linkage parts, part dimensions, and actuator types, using genetic algorithms. The execution of specific...
