Reproducibility evaluation of palpation of anatomical landmarks for estimation of the patient location

  • This study is about estimating the reproducibility of finding palpation points of three different anatomical landmarks in the human body (Xiphoid Process and the 2 Hip Crests) to support a navigated ultrasound application. On 6 test subjects with different body mass index the three palpation points were located five times by two examiners. The deviation from the target position was calculated and correlated to the fat thickness above each palpation point. The reproducibility of the measurements had a mean error of ≈13.5 mm +- 4 mm, which seems to be sufficient for the desired application field.
