Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has been recognized as a cause of early hip osteoarthritis. For FAI surgical treatment, arthroscopic technique has become increasingly popular because of its minimal invasiveness. However, it involves cumbersome procedures and may result in over- or under-resection. To tackle this issue, robot-assisted FAI arthroscopy is a well suited approach because it leads to high accuracy and reproducible surgical outcomes. This book presents new approaches and methods for the current challenges in the development of robot-assisted FAI arthroscopy. Three major studies are covered in this book, including: 1) developing a robust calibration method for the A-mode ultrasound probe used for noninvasive bone registration, 2) developing a bone registration simulator for verifying the registration accuracy and consistency for any given registration point-pattern, and 3) developing a hip range of motion simulation system that returns the virtual range of motion and determines the bone resection volume.


Dr. Chang received both his MS and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering from University of Miami, USA.
