Multi modal image registration enables images from different modalities to be analyzed in the same coordinate system. The class of B-spline-based methods that maximize the Mutual Information between images produce satisfactory result in general, but are often complex and can converge slowly. The popular Demons algorithm, while being fast and easy to(More)
PURPOSE ECG-gated CT enables the visualization of motions caused by the beating of the heart. Although ECG gating is frequently used in cardiac CT imaging, this technique is also very promising for evaluating vessel wall motion of the aortic artery and the motions of (stent grafts inside) abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Late stent graft failure is a(More)
Computer science o‚ers a large set of tools for prototyping, writing, running, testing, validating, sharing and reproducing results, however computational science lags behind. In the best case, authors may provide their source code as a compressed archive and they may feel con€dent their research is reproducible. But this is not exactly true. Jonathan(More)
Endovascular aortic replacement (EVAR) is an established technique, which uses stent grafts to treat aortic aneurysms in patients at risk of aneurysm rupture. Late stent graft failure is a serious complication in endovascular repair of aortic aneurysms. Better understanding of the motion characteristics of stent grafts will be beneficial for designing(More)
Worldwide, more than 180 million people suffer from diabetes mellitus and this number is growing rapidly (World Health Organization). Approximately 50% of these patients will develop complications to their feet [2,7]. Diabetes mellitus is a disease in which the blood sugar becomes too high, damaging the blood vessels, nerves and other internal structures of(More)
