Abstract

This paper describes some past and current research activities at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. We begin with a brief overview of the emerging field of computer-integrated surgery, followed by a research strategy that enables a computer-oriented research laboratory such as ours to participate in this emerging field. We then present highlights of our past and current research in four key areas - orthopaedics, craniofacial surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and medical modeling - and elaborate on the relationship of this work to emerging topics in computer-integrated surgery.
