Image Registration Performance and Image Quality: Ketcha’s Model Provides a Link

Intuitively, the task of registering two images (for example, aligning a preoperative CT image with an intraoperative radiograph or cone-beam CT) must depend on the quality of the images. And it stands to reason that the accuracy of registration will … Continue reading

Ultrasound + Cone-Beam CT Guidance: Paper by Eugenio Marinetto in CMIG

A paper published in the journal of Computerized Medical Imaging and Graphics (CMIG) reports the integration of C-arm cone-beam CT with a low-cost ultrasound imaging probe for needle interventions such as biopsy, tumor ablation, and pain management. The research reports … Continue reading
