Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging
TLDR
3-D ultrasound imaging techniques that are capable of acquiring B-mode, color Doppler and power Dopplers images from existing ultrasound instruments, reconstructing the information in 3-D, and then allowing interactive viewing of 3- D ultrasound images on inexpensive desktop computers are developed.

Prostate volume contouring: a 3D analysis of segmentation using 3DTRUS, CT, and MR.
TLDR
The contouring of prostates on CT, MR, and 3DTRUS results in systematic differences in the locations of and variability in prostate boundary definition between modalities. Expand
3-D ultrasound imaging: a review
TLDR
Approaches that have been attempted in the development of 3-D ultrasound imaging such as3-D B-mode, color Doppler, and power doppler systems are reviewed. Expand
An algorithm for automatic needle localization in ultrasound-guided breast biopsies.
TLDR
An algorithm was developed in order to reduce operator dependence in ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, by automatically locating the needle in the ultrasound image, and displaying its location on the image for the user, which was precise enough to target 90% of tumors of 4.5 mm in diameter situated at the center of the image.

Results of salvage cryoablation of the prostate after radiation: identifying predictors of treatment failure and complications.
PURPOSE We conduct a critical evaluation of cryoablation of prostate cancer after failure of full dose radiotherapy to identify predictors of treatment failure and complications. MATERIALS ANDExpand
Prostate boundary segmentation from 2D ultrasound images.
TLDR
An algorithm is described for semiautomatic segmentation of the prostate from 2D ultrasound images that uses model-based initialization and the efficient discrete dynamic contour. Expand
Prostate segmentation from 2D ultrasound images
TLDR
An algorithm is described for semi-automatic segmentation of the prostate from 2D ultrasound images using model-based initialization and the efficient discrete dynamic contour to segment a wide range of prostate images. Expand
Clinical utility of three-dimensional US.
TLDR
Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasonography (US) is rapidly gaining popularity as it moves out of the research environment and into the clinical setting, and will likely play an increasingly important role in medicine. Expand
Segmentation of carotid artery in ultrasound images: method development and evaluation technique.
TLDR
A segmentation process is described based on the deformable model method with only one seed point to guide the initialization of the deformability model for each lumen cross section, providing a complete performance evaluation of an interactive segmentation algorithm. Expand
Prostate boundary segmentation from ultrasound images using 2D active shape models: Optimisation and extension to 3D
TLDR
This paper describes an algorithm based on two-dimensional (2D) active shape models (ASM) for semi-automatic segmentation of the prostate boundary from ultrasound images using rotational-based slicing. Expand
