A 3,300-bp DNA fragment encoding the carboxyl-transferase domain of the multidomain, chloroplastic acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) was sequenced in aryloxyphenoxypropionate (APP)-resistant and -sensitive Alopecurus myosuroides (Huds.). No resistant plant contained an Ile-1,781-Leu substitution, previously shown to confer resistance to APPs and(More)
Intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) allows the generation of real-time data sets during surgical interventions. The recent innovation of 3D ultrasound probes permits the acquisition of 3D data sets without the need to reconstruct the volume by 2D slices. This article describes the integration of a tracked 3D ultrasound probe into a neuronavigation. An(More)
In this work, we adapted a semi-automatic segmentation algorithm for vascular structures to extract cerebral blood vessels in the 3D intraoperative contrast-enhanced ultrasound angiographic (3D-iUSA) data of the brain. We quantitatively evaluated the segmentation method with a physical vascular phantom. The geometrical features of the segmentation model(More)
Brain tumor surgeries are associated with a high technical and personal effort. The required interactions between the surgeon and the technical components, such as neuronavigation, surgical instruments and intraoperative imaging, are complex and demand innovative training solutions and standardized evaluation methods. Phantom-based training systems could be(More)
Coronary artery diseases are usually revealed using X-ray angiographies. Such images are complex to analyze because they provide a 2D projection of a 3D object. Medical diagnosis suffers from inter- and intra-clinician variability. Therefore, reliable software for the 3D reconstruction and labeling of the coronary tree is strongly desired. It requires the(More)
Surgical processes are complex entities characterized by expressive models and data. Recognizable activities define each surgical process. The principal limitation of current vision-based recognition methods is inefficiency due to the large amount of information captured during a surgical procedure. To overcome this technical challenge, we introduce a(More)
AMILab is a free software for image analysis, processing and visualization. It provides convenient visualization tools for 2D and 3D images and it is highly extensible through its own scripting language. We describe the main visualization features and the scripting language of AMILab. The software includes an automatic C++ wrapping system which permits fast(More)
In this paper, a method of vascular structure identification in intraoperative 3D Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) data is presented. Ultrasound imaging is commonly used in brain tumor surgery to investigate in real time the current status of cerebral structures. The use of an ultrasound contrast agent enables to highlight tumor tissue, but also(More)
Reliable intraoperative resection control during surgery of malignant brain tumours is associated with the longer overall survival of patients. B-mode ultrasound (BUS) is a familiar intraoperative imaging application in neurosurgical procedures and supplies excellent image quality. However, due to resection-induced artefacts, its ability to distinguish(More)
