Recent Submissions

  • Agathos, Alexander; Azariadis, Philip (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    In this work a new reconstruction technique is presented based on Parametric-Based Deformation. The new method uses a template 3D mesh model which is deformed according to user-defined semantic parameters in order to derive ...
  • Ritsos, Panagiotis D.; Edwards, Marc R.; Shergill, Iqbal S.; John, Nigel W. (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    We present the development of a transperineal prostate biopsy, with high fidelity haptic feedback. We describe our current prototype, which is using physical props and a Geomagic Touch. In addition, we discuss a method for ...
  • Vidal, Franck P.; Villard, Pierre-Frédéric (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    We propose a simulation framework to simulate the computed tomography acquisition process. It includes five components: anatomic data, respiration modelling, automatic parametrisation, X-ray simulation, and tomography ...
  • Abbood, Zainab Ali; Rocchisani, Jean-Marie; Vidal, Franck P. (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    We use the Fly algorithm, an artificial evolution strategy, to reconstruct positron emission tomography (PET) images. The algorithm iteratively optimises the position of 3D points. It eventually produces a point cloud, ...
  • Smith, Samuel; Williams, Ian (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    This work presents a new method for 3D surface detection using a statistical dual-region filter. The method improves over traditional 3D surface detection techniques by resolving interfaces between different stochastic ...

    The use of electric wheelchairs is inherently risky, as collisions due to lack of control can result in injury for the user, but also potentially for other pedestrians. Introducing new users to powered chairs via virtual ...
  • Berge, Christian Schulte zu; Weiss, Jakob; Navab, Nassir (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    Neuro resection surgery is one of the last resorts when treating epilepsy patients where conservative treatment shows no effect on seizure reduction. However, due to the severity of the surgery, the resection planning has ...
