In this paper<sup>1</sup>, a framework to acquire and process dynamic data of the tongue during speech processing is presented. First, a setup to acquire data of the tongue shape combining ultrasound images, electromagnetic localization sensors and sound is presented. Techniques to automatically calibrate and synchronize the data are described. A method to(More)
Many vascular pathologies can now be treated in a minimally invasive way thanks to interventional radiology. Instead of open surgery, it allows to reach the lesion of the arteries with therapeutic devices through a catheter. As a particular case, intracranial aneurysms are treated by filling the localized widening of the artery with a set of coils to(More)
Coil embolization offers a new approach to treat aneurysms. This medical procedure is namely less invasive than an open-surgery as it relies on the deployment of very thin platinum-based wires within the aneurysm through the arteries. When performed intracranially, this procedure must be particularly accurate and therefore carefully planned and performed by(More)
Figure 1: A sequence of images showing the superimposition of the 3D real-time biomechanical model onto the human liver, undergoing deformation due to instrument interaction during minimally invasive hepatic surgery. The liver is represented in wireframe, the tumor in purple, the hepatic vein is shown in blue and the portal vein in green. ABSTRACT This(More)
This paper deals with the modeling of a vascular C-arm to generate 3D augmented fluoroscopic images in an interventional radiology context. A methodology based on the use of a multi-image calibration is proposed to assess the physical behavior of the C-arm. From the knowledge of the main characteristics of the C-arm, realistic models of the acquisition(More)
Today, 3-D angiography volumes are routinely generated from rota-tional angiography sequences. In previous work [7], we have studied the precision reached by registering such volumes with classical 2-D angiography images, inferring this matching only from the sensors of the angiography machine. The error led by such a registration can be described as a 3-D(More)
We propose a shape-based variational framework to curve evolution for the segmentation of tongue contours from MRI mid-sagittal images. In particular, we first build a PCA model on tongue contours of different articulations of a reference speaker, and use it as shape priors. The parameters of the curve representation are then manipulated to minimize an(More)
To improve the tool (guide wire and catheter) guidance in interven-tional radiology, a new approach is to project 3D X-ray Angiog-raphy (3DXA) information in real time onto a fluoroscopy image ("3D Augmented Fluoroscopy"-3D AF). Recovering the acquisition geometry is a crucial step for such augmented reality application. As 3DXA and fluoroscopy images are(More)
