Project Description

Objective

This project will investigate approaches to ultrasound-based visualization and navigation in the context of neurosurgery. The goal will be to develop a persistent representation of intra-operatively acquired 2D US data that can be visualized in conjunction with pre-operative MR data.

Approach, Plan

  • We will brainstorm approaches based on current Slicer and PLUS software capabilities. Possible approaches include
    • real-time 3D ultrasound reconstruction
    • painting US data onto predefined visualization planes.
