One-step Needle Pose Estimation for Ultrasound Guided Biopsies

Sara Khosravi; Robert Rohling; Peter Lawrence 2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

A pose estimation method is proposed for measuring the position and orientation of a needle. The technique is to be used as a touchless needle guide system for guidance of percutaneous procedures with 4D ultrasound. A pair of uncalibrated, light-weight USB cameras is used as inputs. A database is prepared offline, from the needle line estimated from camera-captured images and ...


Mueller Matrix Group Theory Formalism for Tissue Imaging Polarimetry Contrast Increase

Felix Fanjul-Velez; David Samperio-Garcia; David Pereda-Cubian; Jose L. Arce-Diego 2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Optical characterization techniques provide a new approach to diagnostic imaging, with features such as a noninvasive or nonionizing character, as long as a resolution improvement. Intensity based measurements could be not enough for certain cases, and polarization information should be also used as a contrast parameter. Imaging polarimetry could be useful in many biomedical applications like dermatology or ophthalmology. Furthermore, ...

The presence of lymphocytic infiltration (LI) has been correlated with nodal metastasis and tumor recurrence in HER2+breast cancer (BC), making it important to study LI. The ability to detect and quantify extent of LI could serve as an image based prognostic tool for HER2+ BC patients. Lymphocyte segmentation in H & E-stained BC histopathology images is, however, complicated due to ...

  • Image???Guided Intervention and Therapy: The First Time Right

    Image???guided targeted therapy delivery is possible through local administration of drugs, or by precise local delivery of energy to the tumor. These procedures require again smaller and smarter interventional instruments that can be controlled with a high level of precision, such as a photonically enhanced biopsy needles that can discriminate between tissue types. Informatics solutions and healthcare transformation services play an important role in enabling this evolution. The faster recovery and shorter hospital stays has helped to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) on the healthcare system. Treatment selection is determined after histopathology and increasingly after additional molecular diagnostics. Apart from surgery and chemotherapy, radiotherapy is an important option in cancer treatment. This chapter discusses the impact of imaging on the diagnostic and therapeutic stages of the world's most common diseases that have an unprecedented impact on the modern societies.

  • Modeling Multicellular and Tumorous Existence with Genetic Cellular Automata

    We model a population of cells using cellular automata with genetically-based rules. As in actual multicellular systems, each cell's state is based on environment and genetics. With imperfect reproduction and the accumulation of random mutations, tumorous behavior naturally emerges in a stochastic manner. We validate our model by reproducing results used to confirm other published models. We also demonstrate that our model exhibits both homeostatic and tumorous behavior using metrics based on clinical biopsy diagnosic techniques.
