Advanced Ultrasound Imaging Techniques for Computer Assisted Interventions

Prof. Dr. Nassir Navab
PD Dr. Tobias Maurer
Dr. Benjamin Frisch

Start of PhD-work at GSISH:
September 2014

Project Description:
In many clinical applications, ultrasound imaging is the modality of choice. It is broadly available, allows for fast acquisitions, offers high frame rates, and does not expose the patient to ionizing radiation or nephrotoxic contrast agent. However, interventional usage of ultrasound imaging poses additional challenges, for instance the requirement of accurate deformable registration to relate tomographic pre-operational images to intraoperative ultrasound images.

The aim of this project is to develop advanced imaging techniques based on ultrasound to assist the clinical workflow in the operating theater. This does not only include novel segmentation and registration algorithms but also considers robotic solutions for automated ultrasound acquisitions.
