Fully automatic brain segmentation using model-guided level sets and skeleton-based models
No opinion
A fully automatic brain segmentation method is presented. First the skull is stripped using a model-based level set on T1-weighted inversion recovery images, then the brain ventricles and basal ganglia are segmented using the same method on T1-weighted [...]

Multi-Atlas-based Segmentation with Hierarchical Max-Flow
No opinion
This study investigates a method for brain tissue segmentation from 3D T1 weighted (T1w) MR images via convex relaxation with a hierarchical ordering constraint. It employs a multi-atlas-based initialization from 5 training images and is tested on 12 T1w MR [...]

Automated Walks using Machine Learning for Segmentation
No opinion
This paper describes an automated algorithm for segmentation of brain structures (CSF, white matter, and gray matter) in MR images. We employ machine learning, i.e. k-Nearest Neighbors, of features derived from k-means, Canny edge detection, and Tourist [...]

Auto-kNN: Brain Tissue Segmentation using Automatically Trained k-Nearest-Neighbor Classification
No opinion
In this paper we applied one of our regularly used processing pipelines for fully automated brain tissue segmentation. Brain tissue was segmented in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM). Our algorithms for skull stripping, tissue [...]

Skull Base Surgery Navigation System Based on Updating Preoperative Images Using Positional Information of Surgical Tools
No opinion
In this paper, we introduce a new concept of surgical navigation which processes information interactively between the real and virtual spaces, namely, updating preoperative images using the positional information of surgical tools. Although the organs are [...]

Perspectives on Image-Guided Transapical Beating Heart Aortic Valve Intervention
No opinion
Image-guided interventional systems become an essential part of the modern minimally invasive surgical procedures, especially for the cardiac surgery. Transapical aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a recently developed surgical technique to treat severe [...]

Steps towards the Integration of Model Guided Therapy Systems into the Healthcare Environment
No opinion
Hospital Information Systems (HIS) are the primary source of information in clinical routine. In most clinics and medical centers, an electronic health record (EHR) stores relevant patient information which is passed between sub-systems using the ISO standard [...]

Small Computings for Clinicals and SCCToolKit, OR friendly Trial Package and Software Development Kit
No opinion
This paper is about a design policy for operation-room (OR) friendly research system, software and a software toolkit SCCToolKit for this purpose, and a few examples. Examples are image processor for endoscope, OR event detector, vision based registration of [...]

An Open-Source Hardware and Software Platform for Telesurgical Robotics Research
No opinion
We present our work to develop a telerobotics research platform that provides complete access to all levels of control via open-source custom electronics and software. The electronics employs an FPGA to enable a centralized computation and distributed I/O [...]

A Lightweight and Portable Communication Framework for Multimodal Image-Guided Therapy
No opinion
In today’s medicine a lot of research revolves around the combination of different imaging and tracking modalities to form a new system for Image-Guided Therapy. Such systems can help to overcome shortcomings of the individual techniques or create new kinds [...]
