ABSTRACT
Rationale and Objectives. Accurate registration of Computed Tomography images to the patient is crucial for
computer-assisted surgery. Markers used in Roentgen Stereogrammetric Analysis can be located in a CT scan
using a novel approach, and can also be located physically. RSA data act as "ground truth" for the 3D marker
