Two-dimensinal laparoscopic ultrasound (LUS) is commonly used for many laparoscopic procedures, but 3D LUS and navigation technology are not conventional tools in the clinic. Navigated LUS can help the user understand and interpret the ultrasound images in relation to the laparoscopic view and preoperative images. When combined with information from MRI or(More)
PURPOSE Treatments like radiotherapy and focused ultrasound in the abdomen require accurate motion tracking, in order to optimize dosage delivery to the target and minimize damage to critical structures and healthy tissues around the target. 4D ultrasound is a promising modality for motion tracking during such treatments. In this study, the authors evaluate(More)
PURPOSE Surgical navigation based on preoperative images partly overcomes some of the drawbacks of minimally invasive interventions - reduction of free sight, lack of dexterity and tactile feedback. The usefulness of preoperative images is limited in laparoscopic liver surgery, as the liver shifts due to respiration, induction of pneumoperitoneum and(More)
