Model Fitting Using RANSAC for Surgical Tool Localization in 3-D Ultrasound Images
Ultrasound guidance is used for many surgical interventions such as biopsy and electrode insertion. We present a method to localize a thin surgical tool such as a biopsy needle or a microelectrode in a 3-D ultrasound image. ...
Multi-resolution parallel integral projection for fast localization of a straight electrode in 3D ultrasound images
We address the problem of fast and accurate localization of miniature surgical instruments like needles or electrodes using 3D ultrasound (US). An algorithm based on maximizing a parallel integral transform (PIP) can ...
3D Ultrasound real-time monitoring of surgical tools
To assist surgeons during their surgical operations, which involve a tool insertion, a real-time application which is able to localise the surgical tool during its movement is proposed. The position of the needle is estimated ...
Parallel integral projection transform for straight electrode localization in 3-D ultrasound images
In surgical practice, small metallic instruments are frequently used to perform various tasks inside the human body. We address the problem of their accurate localization in the tissue. Recent experiments using medical ...
Line filtering for detection of microtools in 3D ultrasound data
We propose a robust method for localization of elongated surgical tools in 3D ultrasound data based on shape analysis. The tubular structures in input data are enhanced by a line filter in the pre-processing phase. A new ...
Line Filtering for Surgical Tool Localization in 3D Ultrasound Images
We present a method for automatic surgical tool localization in 3D ultrasound images based on line ltering, voxel classi cation and model tting. A possible application is to provide assistance for biopsy needle or ...
