Project Description

Intraoperative ultrasound is a safe and cost-effective tool that provides useful information about the localization of the brain tumors and also targeting residual tumor. 3D reconstruction of intra-operative US can be obtained by recording tracked 2D US data and can be visualized in conjunction with pre-operative MRI scans. Recording appropriate 2D US slices can have a direct affect on the output of 3D reconstructed volume. The goal of this project is to develop a visual guidance tool to aid neurosurgeons in the process of recording US data.

Objective

  • To develop a visual guidance tool to aid neurosurgeons in the process of recording US data.

Approach, Plan

  • Create scripted module in 3D Slicer for guiding recording process.

Progress

  • We added the functionality of real-time reconstruction of volumes to PlusRemote module from Slicer through an active PLUS Server connection.
  • We tested the real-time reconstruction on the existing available AMIGO neurosurgery data.
