Automatic lung tumor segmentation with leaks removal in follow-up CT studies

Abstract Purpose In modern oncology, disease progression and response to treatment are routinely evaluated with a series of volumetric scans. The number of tumors and their volume (mass) over time provides a quantitative measure for the evaluation. Thus, many of…

The role of automatic computer-aided surgical trajectory planning in improving the expected safety of stereotactic neurosurgery

Abstract Purpose Minimal invasion computer-assisted neurosurgical procedures with various tool insertions into the brain may carry hemorrhagic risks and neurological deficits. The goal of this study is to investigate the role of computer-based surgical trajectory planning tools in improving the…

Reduced-dose patient to baseline CT rigid registration in 3D Radon space

Abstract We present a new method for rigid registration of CT scans in Radon space. The inputs are the two 3D Radon transforms of the CT scans, one densely sampled and the other sparsely sampled. The output is the rigid…

Fiducial Optimization for Minimal Target Registration Error in Image-Guided Neurosurgery

Abstract This paper presents new methods for the optimal selection of anatomical landmarks and optimal placement of fiducial markers in image-guided neurosurgery. These methods allow the surgeon to optimally plan fiducial marker locations on routine diagnostic images before preoperative imaging…
