Towards Ultrasound-guided Spinal Fusion Surgery (Springer Theses) 1st
by Amir Manbachi (Author)
- This thesis describes
- the design and fabrication of ultrasound probes for pedicle screw guidance. The
- author details the fabrication of a 2MHz radial array for a pedicle screw insertion
- the need for manual rotation of the transducer. He includes radial images obtained
- from successive groupings of array elements in various fluids. He also examines the manner in which it can
- affect ultrasound propagation.
