  • Guided Visualization of Ultrasound Image Sequences 

    Angelelli, Paolo; Viola, Ivan; Nylund, Kim; Gilja, Odd Helge; Hauser, Helwig (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Ultrasonography allows informative and expressive real time examinations of patients. Findings are usually reported as printouts, screen shots and video sequences. However, in certain scenarios, the amount of imaged ...
  • Model-based Solid Texture Synthesis for Anatomic Volume Illustration 

    Kabul, Ilknur; Merck, Derek; Rosenman, Julian; Pizer, Stephen M. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Medical illustrations can make powerful use of texture synthesis to convey information about anatomic structures in an attractive, effective and understandable way. Current visualization methods are not capable of conveying ...
  • Anatomical Volume Visualization with Weighted Distance Fields 

    Kerwin, Thomas; Hittle, Brad; Shen, Han-Wei; Stredney, Don; Wiet, Gregory (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    We describe the use of the weighted distance transform (WDT) to enhance applications designed for volume visualization of segmented anatomical datasets. The WDT is presented as a general technique to generate a derived ...
  • Estimation of the Midsagittal Plane for Sideness Determination of Malignant Structures of Head and Neck 

    Rössling, Ivo; Hahn, Peter; Cyrus, Christian; Dornheim, Lars (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Besides other main criterias like size, infiltration and anatomical district, the sideness of tumor and local metastases (i. e., malignant lymph nodes) is very crucial for head and neck tumor assessment. An automatic ...
  • Importance-Driven Structure Categorization for 3D Surgery Planning 

    Baer, Alexandra; Kellermann, Kerstin; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    We present an importance-driven categorization approach to automatically gather all currently required structures for the surgery planning process. Therefore, we analyzed common demands for tumor intervention planning and ...
  • Interactive Real Time Simulation of Cardiac Radio-Frequency Ablation 

    Pernod, Erik; Sermesant, Maxime; Relan, Jatin; Delingette, Herve (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Virtual reality based therapy simulation meets a growing interest from the medical community due to its potential impact for the training of medical residents and the planning of therapies. In this paper, we describe a ...
  • Staircase-Aware Smoothing of Medical Surface Meshes 

    Moench, Tobias; Adler, Simon; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    The evaluation of spatial relationships between anatomic structures is a major task in surgical planning. Surface models generated from medical image data (intensity, binary) are often used for visualization and 3D measurement ...
  • A General Approach to Model Biomedical Data from 3D Unorganised Point Clouds with Medial Scaffolds 

    Leymarie, Frederic Fol; Chang, Ming-Ching; Imielinska, Celina; Kimia, Benjamin B. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    We present the latest developments in modeling 3D biomedical data via the Medial Scaffold (MS), a 3D acyclic oriented graph representation of the Medial Axis (MA) [LK07, SP08]. TheMS (and associated 3DMA) can be computed ...
  • Efficient Globally Optimal Matching of Anatomical Trees of the Liver 

    Laura, Cristina Oyarzun; Drechsler, Klaus (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Many inexact automatic tree matching algorithms are nowadays available. However, they provide matches that are not completely error free. Another option is to use manually matched node-pairs, but this enormously slows down ...
  • Accelerated Diffusion Operators for Enhancing DW-MRI 

    Rodrigues, Paulo; Duits, Remco; Romeny, Bart M. ter Haar; Vilanova, Anna (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    the intra-voxel diffusion pattern compared to its simpler predecessor diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). However, HARDI in general produces very noisy diffusion patterns due to the low SNR from the scanners at high b-values. ...
  • Visual Analysis of Integrated Resting State Functional Brain Connectivity and Anatomy 

    Dixhoorn, Andre F. van; Vissers, Bastijn H.; Ferrarini, Luca; Milles, Julien; Botha, Charl P. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) is an important modality in the study of the functional architecture of the human brain. The correlation between the resting state fMRI activity traces of ...
  • Visualizing White Matter Fiber Tracts with Optimally Fitted Curved Dissection Surfaces 

    Schurade, Ralph; Hlawitschka, Mario; Hamann, Bernd; Scheuermann, Gerik; Knösche, Thomas R.; Anwander, Alfred (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    bundles in the embedding tissue structures. White matter fiber tractography from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is, in general, visualized as 3D lines or tubes together with 2D anatomical MR slices or surfaces. However, ...
  • Adapted Surface Visualization of Cerebral Aneurysms with Embedded Blood Flow Information 

    Gasteiger, Rocco; Neugebauer, Mathias; Kubisch, Christoph; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Cerebral aneurysms are a vascular dilatation induced by a pathological change of the vessel wall and often require treatment to avoid rupture. Therefore, it is of main interest, to estimate the risk of rupture, to gain a ...
  • Graph Averaging as a Means to Compare Multichannel EEG Coherence Networks 

    Crippa, Alessandro; Maurits, Natasha M.; Roerdink, Jos B. T. M. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    A method is proposed for quantifying differences between multichannel EEG coherence networks represented by functional unit (FU) maps. The approach is based on inexact graph matching for attributed relational graphs and ...
