Fast, simple and effective registration methods are needed in a wide variety of computer-assisted
surgical procedures in which readily locatable anatomical landmarks are not available. Orthopedic
procedures about the knee, in particular, are adversely affected if the registration accuracy exceeds
about 1 mm in translation or about in rotation, and the proximal tibia and distal femur are typi-
cally devoid of small distinct features. Surface-based least-squares registration methods can be used,
