A Biomechanical Model of Soft Tissue Deformation, with Applications to Non-rigid Registration of Brain Images with Tumor Pathology

Abstract

The finite element method is applied to the biomechanics of brain tissue deformation. Emphasis is given to the deformations induced by the growth of tumors, and to the deformable registration of anatomical atlases with patient images. A uniform contraction of the tumor is first used to obtain an estimate of the shape of the brain prior to the growth of the… (More)
