An open electromagnetic tracking framework applied to targeted liver tumour ablation
Using the CustusX toolkit to create an image guided bronchoscopy application: Fraxinus
A Methodical Quantification of Needle Visibility and Echogenicity in Ultrasound Images
Assessment and comparison of target registration accuracy in surgical instrument tracking technologies
Image guided surgery systems aim to support surgeons by providing reliable pre-operative and intra-operative imaging of the patient combined with the corresponding tracked instrument location. The image guidance is based on a combination of medical images, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), C...
Aspiration and altered airway anatomy: a presentation with a twist
A 60-year-old woman presented to our hospital with severe hypercapnic respiratory failure in the absence of a prior smoking history. She reported a 1-day history of increased dyspnoea and a cough productive of green sputum. Her medical history was significant for severe idiopathic scoliosis, cleft p...
ENDOBRONCHIAL TUMOR TARGETING USING A NOVEL ALIGNMENT OF AN OPEN-SOURCE VIRTUAL BRONCHOSCOPY PLATFORM WITH ELECTROMAGNETIC TRACKING: A MULTI-USER PRECLINICAL STUDY
A new procedure for automatic path planning in bronchoscopy
Virtual bronchoscopy is often used for planning a real bronchoscopy procedure. Software applications are developed for virtual bronchoscopy, involving usually segmentation of the tracheobronchial tree from the medical image scan, which is a difficult operation, both conceptually and from the compute...
Pulmonologist evaluation on new CT visualization for guidance to lung lesions during bronchoscopy
Translator disclaimer Full Article Figures & data References Citations Metrics Reprints & Permissions Get access Abstract Objective: Endoluminal visualization in virtual and video bronchoscopy lacks information about the surrounding structures, and the traditional 2 D axial, corona...
Compliant joint echogenicity in ultrasound images: towards highly visible steerable needles
Radio frequency ablation is commonly used in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. Clinicians rely on imaging techniques, such as medical ultrasound, to confirm an accurate needle placement. This accuracy may improve by means of active needle steering techniques, which are currently in developm...
