Ultrasound (US) guided biopsy is a medical procedure routinely performed in clinical practice. This task could be performed by robotic systems to improve the precision in the execution and then the safety for the patient. Both robotic and human procedures could greatly benefit from real-time localization of the needle in US images. This information could(More)
In this work we have designed and developed a new navigation system for interventional radiology, implemented in a light and compact device. The system attached to the needle is composed by a small screen that gives hints about the position and the orientation, a controller that commands the screen and interfaces with the computer, and a marker that(More)
PURPOSE Detection of feature points in medical ultrasound (US) images is the starting point of many clinical tasks, such as segmentation of lesions in pathological areas, estimation of organ deformation, and multimodality image fusion. However, obtaining a reliable feature point localization is a complex task even for an expert radiologist due to the US(More)
