OpenITGLinkMUSiiC: A Standard Communications Protocol for Advanced Ultrasound Research
No opinion
Ultrasound imaging is the most popular and safe diagnostic medical imaging modality. Over the past years, a considerable number of studies have been conducted on new medical ultrasound imaging modalities such as ultrasound-based elasticity imaging, [...]

EM Segmentation: Automatic Tissue Class Intensity Initialization Using K-means
No opinion
ABSTRACT Brain tissue segmentation is important in many medical image applications. We augmented the Expectation-Maximization segmentation algorithm in Slicer3 ( . Currently, in the EM Segmenter module in Slicer3 user input is necessary to [...]

Affine Transformation for Landmark Based Registration Initializer in ITK
This document describes an affine transformation algorithm as an additional feature for landmark based registration in ITK The algorithm is based on the paper by Spath, H [1]. The author derives a set of linear equations from paired landmarks and [...]

A File Reader for the VisualSonics Vevo 770 Digital RF Data
A C++ file reader for the VisualSonics Vevo® 770 high frequency ultrasound system is presented. The digital RF header file is read into an XML DOM representation, which can be serialized as XML, HTML, or accessed in C++ natively with data object binding. [...]

OpenIGTLink Protocol Version 2
No opinion
In this paper, we review the technical details of new features in OpenIGTLink version 2. OpenIGTLink is a free open-source network communication protocol designed for data exchange among devices and software. Since the first release of version 1.0 protocol [...]

TiCoLi - An Open Software Library for Device Integration in the Digital OR based on Open Software and Open Standards
No opinion
Purpose The lack of interfaces for system integration in the Operating Room (OR) has been recognized as one of the major factors to impede efficient OR turnover procedures as well as efficient intraoperative data handling and ergonomics in the OR. A software [...]

CTest Integration of Sikuli Automated GUI Testing
No opinion
In order to test our software GoFigure2 for the visualization and the processing of extremely large 3D+t microscopy images, we utilized the visual programming technology Sikuli to automate our GUI testing. We then integrated these Sikuli tests into CTest [...]

Extending the tracking device support in the Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK): CamBar B2, EasyTrack 500, and Active Polaris
No opinion
The Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK) provides tracker interfaces for various tracking devices. The tracker component of IGSTK was extended with three new tracking interfaces: CamBar B2, EasyTrack 500, and Active Polaris. Using an IGSTK application we [...]

Towards an open-source pipeline for patient-specific neurosurgery simulation
Surgery simulation is a technology based on interactive biomechanics as well as haptic and visual rendering for training novice surgeons. Another important component of a surgery simulator is the representation of a patient's anatomy in terms of simple [...]

Component-based software for dynamic configuration and control of computer assisted intervention systems
No opinion
This paper presents the rationale for the use of a component-based architecture for computer-assisted intervention (CAI) systems, including the ability to reuse components and to easily develop distributed systems. We introduce three additional capabilities, [...]
