I am creating a surgical navigation framework within Slicer for bone fracture procedures. This includes creating preoperative surgical plans using CT scans (i.e. digitizing desired final location of implant). During the procedure, what is the best way to visualize the position of a tracked implant (we are using PLUS + NDI Polaris) compared to the planned position, and is there way to show the optimal live trajectory of the implant? Are there any modules that do this already? I looked at PathExplorer but it didn’t seem to work when I input toy fiducial markers.
Also what is the best way to visualize the overall scene as the tracked implant is being manipulated? The volume reslice driver and Viewpoint modules look promising for showing the implant position with respect to the image and model, but I was wondering if there is a visualization that your team has found is more intuitive for targeting during surgical procedures?
