This paper deals with a new approach of registration in multimodal imaging. Modalities involved are Digital Subtracted Angiography (DSA, 2D) and Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA, 3D). Our approach is an hybrid one, mixing feature and intensity based approaches. This approach is based on the extraction of a anatomical referential common to both MRA and(More)
Techniques of three-dimensional (3-D) volume delineation from tomographic medical imaging are usually based on 2-D contour definition. For a given structure, several different contours can be obtained depending on the segmentation method used or the user's choice. The goal of this work is to develop a new method that reduces the inaccuracies generally(More)
Healthcare monitoring applications requires the measurement and the analysis of multiple physiological data. In the field of biomedical research, these data are issued from different devices involving data centralization and synchronization difficulties. On the other hand, the analysis of the acquired data requires high level digital signal processing(More)
A fast algorithm for the well-known Parzen window method to estimate density functions from the samples is described. The computational efforts required by the conventional and straightforward implementation of this estimation procedure limit its practical application to data of low dimensionality. The proposed algorithm makes the computation of the same(More)
<lb>In this paper, we propose an original approach in order to improve the results of color im-<lb>age segmentation by pixel classification. We define a new kind of color space by selecting a set<lb>of color components which can belong to any of the different classical color spaces. Such<lb>spaces, which have neither psycho-visual nor physical color(More)
Magnetic resonance is recognized as potentially the best imaging procedure for localization in stereotactic neurosurgery. However, special difficulties necessitate specific adaptation to localize targets in the stereotactic frame. We developed a new method for stereotactic localization. The MR studies were performed using a 0.5 T imager. Four small boxes(More)
The authors present a method of stereotaxic localisation using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) computerized tomography (CT) and digital subtracted angiography (DSA) which does not require localisation frams fixed to the patient's skull, but uses only four cranial landmarks corresponding to the holders of the neurosurgical stereotaxic frame. The method(More)
PURPOSE This paper presents a new optimization method of treatment planning in linac stereotactic radiosurgery. METHODS AND MATERIALS On a workstation integrating x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and digital subtracted angiography (DSA) images, we first determine the outlines of the target volume and surrounding healthy(More)
