PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of transabdominal probe pressure on prostate positioning with an intramodality ultrasound (US) image-guided-radiotherapy system and to quantify pressure variability over the treatment course. MATERIAL AND METHODS 8 prostate cancer patients (group A) and 17 healthy volunteers underwent 3 consecutive US images with increasing(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate a new system based on transperineal ultrasound (TP-US) acquisitions for prostate and post-prostatectomy pre-treatment positioning by comparing this device to cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). METHODS The differences between CBCT/CT and TP-US/TP-US registrations were analyzed on 427 and 453 sessions for 13(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present work is to propose and evaluate registration algorithms of three-dimensional (3D) transabdominal (TA) ultrasound (US) images to setup postprostatectomy patients during radiation therapy. METHODS Three registration methods have been developed and evaluated to register a reference 3D-TA-US image acquired during the planning CT(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of an intra-modality trans-abdominal ultrasound (TA-US) device against soft-tissue based Cone-Beam Computed tomography (CBCT) registration for prostate and post-prostatectomy pre-treatment positioning. METHODS The differences between CBCT and US shifts were calculated on 25 prostate cancer patients (cohort A) and 11(More)
The aim of this article is to present a new projective stereological image processing method to estimate the volume of a 3D particle with known convex shape from its different projected areas. In order to do so, an optimization algorithm is performed to determine the size parameters of the particle which maximize the likelihood function of the probability(More)
This paper presents a method to recognize polygonal-shaped particles (i.e. rectangles, regular/irregular prisms) among agglomerated crystals from in-situ images during a crystallization process. The aim is to measure the particle size distributions (PSD); a key measurement needed for monitoring and controlling industrial crystallization operations . The(More)
To tackle the problem of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-only radiotherapy treatment planning (RTP), we propose a multi-atlas information propagation scheme that jointly segments organs and generates pseudo x-ray computed tomography (CT) data from structural MR images (T1-weighted and T2-weighted). As the performance of the method strongly depends on the(More)
