Today's follow-up of patients presenting abdominal tumors is generally performed through acquisition of dynamic sequences of contrast-enhanced CT. Estimating parameters of appropriate models of contrast intake diffusion through tissues should help characterizing the tumor physiology, but is impeded by the high level of noise inherent to the acquisition(More)
CT perfusion imaging is used for the follow-up of abdominal tumors. A specificity of our work is that patients are breathing freely during image acquisition (5 minutes). We propose an automatic 3D image registration to compensate respiratory motion. The registration is computed in two main steps: global translation in the z-direction and 3D multiresolution(More)
Patients follow-up in oncology is generally performed through the acquisition of dynamic sequences of contrast-enhanced images. Estimating parameters of appropriate models of contrast intake diffusion through tissues should help characterizing the tumour physiology. However, several models have been developed and no consensus exists on their clinical use.(More)
Dynamic contrast-enhanced computed tomography (DCE-CT) is a valuable imaging modality to assess tissues properties, particularly in tumours, by estimating pharmacokinetic parameters from the evolution of pixels intensities in 3D+t acquisitions. However, this requires a registration of the whole sequence of volumes, which is challenging especially when the(More)
Renal metastases in the evolution of an esophagus epidermoid carcinoma are rare and are frequently bilateral or associated with many other metastases. The authors present an original article of a single metastasis. They discuss the importance of imagery and locoregional status in the management of patient.
