Over the last decade Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) has emerged particularly in the area of minimally invasive Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR) surgery. Image registration is an important aspect in all computer assisted surgeries which is a process of developing a spatial relationship between pre-operative data, such as Computerised Tomography (CT) scans or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans and the physical patient in the operation theatre. It allows the surgeon to visualise the 3D pre-operative scan data in-relation to the patient's anatomy in the operating theatre.
