Nearly automatic vessels segmentation using graph-based energy minimization
No opinion
We present a nearly automatic tool for the accurate segmentation of vascular structures in volumetric CTA images. Its inputs are a start and an end seed points inside the vessel. The two-step graph-based energy minimization method starts by computing the [...]

Extension to OpenIGTLink; Smart Socket Connection, XML as Message, Logging, and One-to-multi Relaying
No opinion
We extended OpenIGTLink with following useful features; 1) AgentSocket class to capsulate socket initiation for smarter socket connection with try-catch implementation, 2) XmlMessage class to handle an XML text message. Using this extension, we will implement [...]

3D Slicer Based Surgical Robot Console System
starstarstarstarstar
This document describes the surgical robot console system based on 3D Slicer for image-guided surgery. Considering the image-guided surgery, since image workstations have complex User Interface (UI) and extra functions, it is supposed that such UI is not [...]

4D Morphological segmentation and the MICCAI LV-segmentation grand challenge
No opinion
The goal of the Cardiac MR Left Ventricle Segmentation Challenge at MICCAI 2009 is to compare state-of-the-art LV segmentation methods. This goal is facilitated through an evaluation system and a database of cardiac cine MR images, as well as expert contours, [...]

An open-source real-time ultrasound reconstruction system for four-dimensional imaging of moving organs
starstarstarstarstar
Four-dimensional imaging is a necessary step in computer-assisted interventions (CAI) performed on moving surgical targets, such as those located within the beating heart or influenced by respiratory motion. Ultrasound (US) is often the best imaging modality [...]

The Role of DICOM for Modular Perioperative Surgical Assist Systems Design
No opinion
This document describes the role of DICOM as one major standard which will enable interoperability between systems used for surgical planning, intraoperative surgical assist systems and postoperative documentation. We first give an brief overview about DICOM [...]

An integrated OR system based on open standards
No opinion
An open standards based modular OR integration system was designed, which is modelled as component-based service-oriented architecture. Medical devices, IT hardware, and software are integrated as independent components and interconnected through a TCP/IP [...]

Evaluation of the Dynamic Deformable Elastic Template model for the segmentation of the heart in MRI sequences
No opinion
We introduce a bio-inspired dynamic deformable (DET) model based on the equation of dynamics and including temporal smoothness constraints. The behaviour and characteristics of the dynamic DET model is studied in the context of the semi automatic [...]

MatVTK - 3D Visualization for Matlab
No opinion
The rapid and flexible visualization of large amounts of com- plex data has become a crucial part in medical image analysis. In re- cent years the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) has evolved as the de-facto standard for open-source medical data visualization. [...]

A generic computer assisted intervention plug-in module for 3D Slicer with multiple device support
No opinion
Various frameworks and toolkits have been proposed for rapid development of computer assisted intervention (CAI) software. In this paper, we investigate how the open-source 3D Slicer application framework can be used for this purpose. We defined common [...]
