Motion correction in Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE-) MRI is challenging because rapid intensity changes can compromise common (intensity based) registration algorithms. In this study we introduce a novel registration technique based on robust principal component analysis (RPCA) to decompose a given time-series into a low rank and a sparse component. This(More)
This is an official guideline of the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) and the European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR). It addresses the clinical indications for the use of computed tomographic colonography (CTC). A targeted literature search was performed to evaluate the evidence supporting the use of CTC.(More)
BACKGROUND Intestinal stricturing and aberrant small bowel motility are common complications in patients with Crohn's disease (CD) leading to significant morbidity. A retrospective study was performed quantifying small bowel motility within and upstream of strictures in CD patients using magnetic resonance enterography (MRE). METHODS A total of 91(More)
PURPOSE To identify and compare key stages of the visual process in experienced and inexperienced readers and to examine how these processes are used to search a moving three-dimensional ( 3D three-dimensional ) image and their relationship to false-negative errors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board research ethics approval was granted to(More)
Computed Tomographic (CT) colonography is a technique used for the detection of bowel cancer or potentially precancerous polyps. The procedure is performed routinely with the patient both prone and supine to differentiate fixed colonic pathology from mobile faecal residue. Matching corresponding locations is difficult and time consuming for radiologists due(More)
This study introduces a combination of two registration techniques for respiratory motion removal and the quantification of small bowel motility from free breathing cine MRI. The use of robust data decomposition registration (RDDR) allows for exclusive correction of respiratory motion in order to avoid errors in further analysis of motility due to the(More)
Potentially precancerous polyps detected with CT colonography (CTC) need to be removed subsequently, using an optical colonoscope (OC). Due to large colonic deformations induced by the colonoscope, even very experienced colonoscopists find it difficult to pinpoint the exact location of the colonoscope tip in relation to polyps reported on CTC. This can(More)
OBJECTIVE Eye tracking in three dimensions is novel, but established descriptors derived from two-dimensional (2D) studies are not transferable. We aimed to develop metrics suitable for statistical comparison of eye-tracking data obtained from readers of three-dimensional (3D) "virtual" medical imaging, using CT colonography (CTC) as a typical example.
