The authors have developed a bed-type non-invasive ultrasound theragnostic system (NIUTS) that compensates for movement by tracking and following the area to be treated by stereo ultrasound imaging while irradiating high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) onto the affected area. In this paper, we propose a novel robust template matching method to track and(More)
The authors have developed a non-invasive ultrasound theragnostic system (NIUTS) with a focal lesion servo (FLS) function based on stereo ultrasound imaging in order to compensate for movement while irradiating high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) onto a focal lesion. In the present paper, we propose a redundant motion control mechanism of the HIFU(More)
The authors have investigated a construction methodology for a non-invasive ultrasound theragnostic system, called NIUTS, to track and follow moving body targets, such as tumors / stones located in moving organs (kidneys, livers, etc.), robustly and precisely, so as to compensate for nearly 90 percent of target motions in ultrasound images, while(More)
In this study, we aimed to develop a stereoscopic fluorescence camera system for simultaneous evaluation of wall motion and tissue perfusion using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence imaging. The system consists of two high-speed stereo cameras, an excitation lamp, and a computer for image processing. Evaluation experiments demonstrated that the(More)
The purpose of this study is to develop a new endoscope for performing simple surgical tasks inside a cardiac atrium/chamber filled with blood, i.e., for performing "off-pump" cardiac surgeries. In general, it is very difficult to observe the inner wall of the vessels containing circulating blood because the light from the endoscope is scattered by the red(More)
