Head and Neck Auto-segmentation Challenge
No opinion
This paper presents the results of the Head and Neck Auto-segmentationChallenge, which was part of the workshop “3D Segmentation in the Clinic: A Grand Challenge”. This workshop took place in London, UK, in September 2009, in conjunction with the 12th [...]

Predicting implant stability: in vitro validation in artificial bone
Primary stability of osseointegrated implants is necessary for short and long-term success of the treatment. This paper presents a method to help clinicians preoperatively assess this primary implant stability. The method combines a planning software with a [...]

Importing Contours from DICOM-RT Structure Sets
This paper presents parsing software for importing contours from DICOM RT structure set files into binary image files. This is a common requirement for transferring expert manual segmentations from radiotherapy treatment planning software into external image [...]

Importing Contours from DICOM-RT Structure Sets with ITK4
This paper presents code for reading contours from DICOM RT structure set files into binary labels. This is a common requirement for transferring expert manual segmentations from radiotherapy treatment planning software into external image analysis [...]

Fast image-based model of mitral valve closure for surgical planning
Surgical repair of the mitral valve results in better outcomes than valve replacement, yet diseased valves are often replaced due to the technical difficulty of the repair process. A surgical planning system based on patient-specific medical images that [...]

Multimodal Analysis of Vasogenic Edema in Glioblastoma Patients for Radiotherapy Planning
No opinion
Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common type of primary brain tumor, which is characterized by an infiltrative growth pattern. In current practice, radiotherapy planning is primarily based upon T2 FLAIR MRI despite its known lack of specificity in the detection [...]

Dose Painting with a Variable Collimator for the Small Animal Radiation Research Platform (SARRP)
No opinion
The goal of radiation treatment is to irradiate cancer cells (i.e., a target region) without destroying adjacent healthy tissue. Thus, it is advantageous to form the beam so that it best approximates the target, thereby reducing the amount of dose absorbed in [...]

Tetrahedral mesh generation for medical imaging
We describe the open source implementation of an adaptive tetrahedral mesh generator particularly targeted for non-rigid FEM registration of MR images. While many medical imaging applications require robust mesh generation, there are few codes available. [...]

3D Voxel-Based Volumetric Image Registration with Volume-View Guidance
No opinion
In this article, we will present a novel interactive image registration technique using the 3D volumetric view as guidance throughout the registration process. The registration criterion used in this technique is the homogeneity of the color distribution on [...]

A Mix-resolution Bone-related Statistical Deformable Model (mBr-SDM) for Soft Tissue Prediction in Orthognathic Surgery Planning
In this paper, we propose a Mix-resolution Bone-related Statistical Deformable Model (mBr-SDM) to improve the predicting accuracy of orthognathic surgery, particularly for the main deformation region. Mix-resolution Br-SDM consists of two separate Br-SDM of [...]

Automatic Segmentation of Head and Neck CT Images by GPU-Accelerated Multi-atlas Fusion
No opinion
Treatment planning for high precision radiotherapy of head and neck (H&N) cancer patients requires accurate delineation of critical structures. Manual contouring is tedious and often suffers from large inter- and intra-rater variability. In this paper, we [...]

Visualization of 4D-PET/CT, Target Volumes and Dose Distribution: Applications in Radiotherapy Planning
No opinion
In radiation treatment (RT) planning medical doctors need to consider a variety of information sources for anatomical and functional target volume delineation. The validation and inspection of the defined target volumes and the resulting RT plan is a complex [...]
