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 ...
