Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules found on antigen-presenting cells present peptides derived from cytoplasmic proteins to T cells. In contrast, peptides from exogenous proteins are mostly presented by class II molecules. It has been well established that liposomes can serve as an efficient delivery system for entry of exogenous(More)
We present a method for real-time, freehand 3D ultrasound (3D-US) reconstruction of moving anatomy, with specific application towards guiding the catheter ablation procedure in the left atrium. Using an intracardiac echo (ICE) catheter with a pose (position/orientation) sensor mounted to its tip, we continually mosaic 2D-ICE images of a left atrium phantom(More)
The catheter ablation procedure is a minimally invasive surgery used to treat atrial fibrillation. Difficulty visualizing the catheter inside the left atrium anatomy has led to lengthy procedure times and limited success rates. In this paper, we present a set of algorithms for reconstructing 3D ultrasound data of the left atrium in real-time, with an(More)
We present a method for registering position and orientation data collected from an electroanatomic mapping system (EMS) to a surface mesh based on segmented Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance (MR) images of the left atrium. Our algorithm is based on the Unscented Particle Filter (UPF) for stochastic state estimation. Using an intracardiac echo(More)
We present a method for registering real-time ultrasound of the left atrium to an outdated, anatomic surface mesh model, whose shape differs from that of the anatomy. Using an intracardiac echo (ICE) catheter with mounted 6DOF electromagnetic position/orientation sensor (EPS), we acquire images of the left atrium and determine where the ICE catheter must be(More)
