A guidewire is a medical device inserted into vessels during image guided interventions for balloon inflation. During interventions, the guidewire undergoes non-rigid deformation due to patients' breathing and cardiac motions, and such 3D motions are complicated when being projected onto the 2D fluoroscopy. Furthermore, in fluoroscopy there exist severe(More)
Catheter tracking has become more and more important in recent interventional applications. It provides real time guidance for the physicians and can be used as motion compensated reference for other guidance, e.g. a 3D anatomical model. Tracking the coronary sinus (CS) catheter is effective to compensate respiratory and cardiac motion for 3D overlay to(More)
An accurate and robust method to detect curve structures, such as a vessel branch or a guidewire, is essential for many medical imaging applications. A fully automatic method, although highly desired, is prone to detection errors that are caused by image noise and curve-like artifacts. In this paper, we present a novel method to interactively detect a curve(More)
In this paper, we present a method of using the needle detection and tracking to compensate breathing motion in 2D fluo-roscopic videos. The method can robustly detect and tracking needles, even with the presence of image noises and large needle movements. The method first introduces an offline learned needle segment detector that detects needle segments at(More)
In image-guided cardiac interventions, X-ray imaging and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging are two often used modalities. Interventional X-ray images, including angiography and fluoroscopy, are used to assess the lumen of the coronary arteries and to monitor devices in real time. IVUS provides rich intravascular information, such as vessel wall(More)
The accurate and robust tracking of catheters and transducers employed during image-guided coronary intervention is critical to improve the clinical workflow and procedure outcome. Image-based device detection and tracking methods are preferred due to the straightforward integration into existing medical equipments. In this paper, we present a novel(More)
This paper presents a new technique of coronary digital subtraction angiography which separates layers of moving background structures from dynamic fluoroscopic sequences of the heart and obtains moving layers of coronary arteries. A Bayeisan framework combines dense motion estimation, uncertainty propagation and statistical fusion to achieve reliable(More)
Dynamic overlay of 3D models onto 2D X-ray images has important applications in image guided interventions. In this paper, we present a novel catheter tracking for motion compensation in the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). To address such challenges as catheter shape and appearance changes, occlusions, and distractions from cluttered(More)
A fully automatic framework is proposed to identify consistent landmarks and wire structures in a rotational X-ray scan. In our application, we localize the balloon marker pair and the guidewire in between the marker pair on each projection angle from a rotational fluoroscopic sequence. We present an effective offline balloon marker tracking algorithm that(More)
