Vessel-based rigid registration for endovascular therapy of the abdominal aorta
Noninvasive Transorbital Assessment of the Optic Nerve Sheath in Children: Relationship Between Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter, Deformability Index, and Intracranial Pressure
BACKGROUND: Measurement of optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) is a promising technique for noninvasive assessment of intracranial pressure (ICP), but has certain limitations. A recent study showed that the deformability index (DI), a dynamic parameter quantifying the pulsatile nature of the optic ne...
Manually steerable catheter with improved agility
Purpose: A prototype steerable catheter was designed for endovascular procedures. This technical pilot study reports the initial experience using the catheter for cannulation of visceral arteries. Technique: The 7F catheter was manually steerable with operator control handle for bending and rotation...
Pulsatile dynamics of the optic nerve sheath and intracranial pressure: An exploratory in vivo investigation
BACKGROUND: Raised intracranial pressure (ICP) may lead to increased stiffness of the optic nerve sheath (ONS). OBJECTIVE: To develop a method for analyzing ONS dynamics from transorbital ultrasound and investigate a potential difference between patients with raised ICP vs normal ICP. METHODS: We re...
Registration of Real-Time 3-D Ultrasound to Tomographic Images of the Abdominal Aorta
The purpose of this study was to develop an image-based method for registration of real-time 3-D ultrasound to computed tomography (CT) of the abdominal aorta, targeting future use in ultrasound-guided endovascular intervention. We proposed a method in which a surface model of the aortic wall was se...
