The main purpose of this work is to present a simple quantitative approach for assessing artifacts in passive instruments when used in an MRI environment. It is mainly based on a quantitative indicator related with the amount of distortion produced by the instrument on a 3D surface obtained from the 2D MR image. After a preprocessing stage for attenuation(More)
Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for guiding minimally invasive interventions requires surgical devices which on one hand are visible in the MR image but on the other hand do not generate large artifacts, which distort the overall imaging process. Passive markers are one way to visualize devices such as catheters or biopsy needles in MRI. The(More)
