Concept for Markerless 6D Tracking Employing Volumetric Optical Coherence Tomography

Matthias Schlüter, Lukas Glandorf, Martin Gromniak, Thore Saathoff & Alexander Schlaefer
Optical tracking systems are widely used, for example, to navigate medical interventions. Typically, they require the presence of known geometrical structures, the placement of artificial markers, or a prominent texture on the target’s surface. In this work, we propose a 6D tracking approach employing volumetric optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. OCT has a micrometer-scale resolution and employs near-infrared light to penetrate few millimeters into, for example, tissue. Thereby, it provides sub-surface information which we use...
