We discuss how to use 3D Slicer in ultrasound (US)-guided interventions. Our goal is to identify common functions in these applications and create a platform from them in 3D Slicer.
- In 2012 Slicer programming week
- 1pm - 3pm, Thursday, June 21, 2012
- Grier, MIT
- Tamas Ungi, Queen's University
- Kirby Vosburgh, BWH
- Temporal and spatial calibration of tracked US probes using PLUS (Csaba) (slides)
- Real time US display in Slicer to guide interventions (Tamas)
- Perk Tutor: A configurable, Slicer-based training platform for ultrasound-guided needle insertions (Tamas)
- Low cost hardware. Capture and replay of experimental or clinical sessions (Kirby)
- Slicer CaseHub - Plans for capturing, organizing, and accessing multi-track procedure data (Steve)
- US to US registration (Matt)
- 4D US in Slicer (Laurent)
- Transapical valve surgery - not yet in Slicer (Elvis)
- Improving Ultrasound imaging. This involves acquiring RF level or other data from the mid-processor stage of the imager (see http://www.ti.com/lit/wp/sprab12/sprab12.pdf, Figure 2) with the intent to provide a more suitable image for a particular application.
- Ultrasound post-processing, in which the image is processed to better enable, for example, registration to a CT data set.
- Calibration, registration and display of ultrasound in 3D Slicer
- Real time (lag free) display of high quality US in Slicer for procedure guidance and lag free registered display in 3D models.
- The combination of 3 and 4 on low cost commodity hardware.
- The capture of all data to enable post procedure replay of a experimental or clinical session, so that the various processing steps can be debugged and optimized.
