The location and stability of a surgical implant is a critical factor for a successful clinical outcome. This is dependent upon being able to define the position of an implant in relation to its mating bone or body-segment. Advances in the surgical process require definition of body-segment coordinates to be robust which is influenced by the references these coordinate frames are derived from. This paper presents preliminary findings in the use of metrology tools and techniques to register bone landmarks in an accurate and repeatable manner and address whether the establishment of a body-segment coordinate frame can aid in implant positioning.
