Robot Assisted Needle Placement: Application developed using an open source image guided surgery toolkit (IGSTK)
Using a robot system to position needles or needle shaped tools during clinical procedures such as biopsy, radio frequency ablation, and target drug delivery has a great potentials in increasing accuracy and speed of the process, and minimizing trauma to [...]

Automatic Mandible Segmentation on CT Images Using Prior Anatomical Knowledge
No opinion
We present a fully automatic method for segmenting mandible in CT images using anatomic landmarks and prior knowledge. The aim is to utilize spatial relationship of anatomic landmarks with image processing techniques to detect mandible robustly and [...]

Coronary Artery Tracking in 3D Cardiac CT Images Using Local Morphological Reconstruction Operators
No opinion
Automatic segmentation and tracking of the coronary artery tree from Cardiac Multislice-CT images is an important goal to improve the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease. This paper presents a semi-automatic algorithm (one input point per [...]

Acquisition of Synchrotron Radiation micro-CT images for the investigation of bone micro-cracks
This paper describes two 3D micro-CT datasets of 23 and 5.9 Gigabytes that Creatis has made publicly available to the imaging community. These datasets were acquired using Synchrotron Radiation micro-Ct at the ESRF at a spatial resolution of 1.4 microns. The [...]

FusionViewer: An Open Source Toolkit for Viewing Multimodality Images
No opinion
FusionViewer is an open source and platform independent viewer that has been specifically designed for PET/CT image display. The combination of PET and CT images offers complementary functional and anatomical information. The application (FusionViewer) [...]

An Automatic Seeding Method For Coronary Artery Segmentation and Skeletonization in CTA
No opinion
An automatic seeding method for coronary artery segmentation and skeletonization is presented. The new method includes automatic removal of the rib cage, tracing of the ascending aorta and initial planting of seeds for the coronary arteries. The automatic [...]

Ensemble segmentation using AdaBoost with application to liver lesion extraction from a CT volume
This paper describes an ensemble segmentation trained by the AdaBoost algorithm, which finds a sequence of weak hypotheses, each of which is appropriate for the distribution on training example, and combines the weak hypotheses by a weighted majority vote. In [...]

Direct Fourier Tomographic Reconstruction Image-To-Image Filter
We present an open-source ITK implementation of a direct Fourier method for tomographic reconstruction, applicable to parallel-beam x-ray images. Direct Fourier reconstruction makes use of the central-slice theorem to build a polar 2D Fourier space from the [...]

Automatic Segmentation of Head and Neck CT Images by GPU-Accelerated Multi-atlas Fusion
No opinion
Treatment planning for high precision radiotherapy of head and neck (H&N) cancer patients requires accurate delineation of critical structures. Manual contouring is tedious and often suffers from large inter- and intra-rater variability. In this paper, we [...]

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 [...]

Visualization of 4D-PET/CT, Target Volumes and Dose Distribution: Applications in Radiotherapy Planning
No opinion
In radiation treatment (RT) planning medical doctors need to consider a variety of information sources for anatomical and functional target volume delineation. The validation and inspection of the defined target volumes and the resulting RT plan is a complex [...]
