IGSTK: Building High Quality Roads with Open Source Software
No opinion
This paper is a position statement on the benefits that an Open Source toolkit can bring to the field of image guided surgery. The particular example discussed here is the IGSTK toolkit. IGSTK is an open source software project designed for supporting the [...]

Image Registration with Automatic Computation of Gradients
Many image registration algorithms are formulated as optimization problems with a gradient descent based solver, One difficulty with designing and implementing such methods is in the implementation of the [...]

The Surgical Assistant Workstation
No opinion
The Surgical Assistant Workstation (SAW) is a software development framework that can be used to develop new applications in robot-assisted surgery with augmented visualization. Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery and micro-surgery as presented by the da [...]

The cisst libraries for computer assisted intervention systems
No opinion
Computer assisted intervention (CAI) systems require the integration of an increasing number of devices, including medical monitors, sensors, tracking devices and robots. This complexity makes applications harder to develop, more difficult to debug and the [...]

Edge Based Tube Detection for Coronary Artery Centerline Extraction
No opinion
The extraction of the coronary artery central lumen lines from CTA datasets is a necessary prerequisite for the computerized assessment of heart related disease. In this work, we present an automatic approach for this task that consists of generic methods for [...]

The da Vinci Research Interface
No opinion
The da Vinci research interface allows third party developers and research collaborators to retrieve a real-time stream of kinematic and user event data from the da Vinci Surgical System during clinical use. This data includes the motion of all master and [...]

Simulink Libraries for Visual Programming of VTK and ITK
We have created open-source Simulink block libraries for ITK and VTK that allow pipelines for these toolkits to be built in a visual, drag-and-drop style within MATLAB. Each block contains an instance of an ITK or VTK class. Any block connections and [...]

Efficient Automated Detection and Segmentation of Medium and Large Liver Tumors: CAD Approach
In this paper, we present a fully automated system that detects and segments potential liver cancer tumors from a thin slice CT data. The system is targeted toward a tumor whose volume is larger than $1 cm^3$, and is efficient as the average computation [...]

An Open-Source Solution for Interactive Acquisition, Processing and Transfer of Interventional Ultrasound Images
No opinion
Ultrasound has become a very important modality in image-guided therapy. At present, however, the collection, synchronization and transfer of ultrasonic images are more cumbersome than necessary. This paper presents a reusable solution to these problems. We [...]
