(The Eurographics Association, 2017)Using 3D models of medical data for surgery or treatment planning requires a comprehensive visualization of the data. This is crucial to support the physician in creating a cognitive image of the presented model. Vascular ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2017)Function of the heart, including interventricular septum motion, is influenced by respiration and contraction of the heart muscle. Recent real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can acquire multi-cycle cardiac data, ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2017)The presence of depth cues in a visualization can be a great aid in understanding the structure and topology of a vessel tree. Pseudo Chromadepth is a well-known technique for enhancing depth perception in vascular 3D ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2017)The assessment of rib bone fractures and lesions consists of many images that have to be thoroughly inspected slice-by-slice and rib-by-rib. Existing visualization methods, such as curved planar reformation (CPR), reduce ...
UI-Net: Interactive Artificial Neural Networks for Iterative Image Segmentation Based on a User Model (The Eurographics Association, 2017)For complex segmentation tasks, fully automatic systems are inherently limited in their achievable accuracy for extracting relevant objects. Especially in cases where only few data sets need to be processed for a highly ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2017)Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a broadly used therapy in patients that suffers from heart failure (HF). The positive outcome of CRT depends strongly on the parameters criteria used to select patients and a lot ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2017)Breast cancer is the second most common cause of death in women. Computer-aided diagnosis typically demand for carefully annotated data, precise tumor allocation and delineation of the boundaries, which is rarely available ...
Automatic Thrombus Detection in Non-enhanced Computed Tomography Images in Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke (The Eurographics Association, 2017)In case of an ischemic stroke, identifying and removing blood clots is crucial for a successful recovery. We present a novel method to automatically detect vascular occlusion in non-enhanced computed tomography (NECT) ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2017)In this paper, we propose a novel hybrid level set approach that locally balances the combined use of both Gradient Vector Flow and region based energy cost function by means of the Bhattacharyya coefficient. The local ...
Multi-fiber Estimation and Tractography for Diffusion MRI using mixture of Non-central Wishart Distributions (The Eurographics Association, 2017)Multi-compartmental models are popular to resolve intra-voxel fiber heterogeneity. One such model is the mixture of central Wishart distributions. In this paper, we use our recently proposed model to estimate the orientations ...
Application of Image Processing Functions for Brain Tumor Enhancement in Intraoperative Ultrasound Image Data (The Eurographics Association, 2017)Intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) imaging supports neurosurgeons significantly during brain tumor operations. At the beginning of the intervention the integration of the iUS image data within the navigation system guides the ...
