A Combined Statistical and Biomechanical Model for Estimation of Intra-operative Prostate Deformation

Abstract

An approach for estimating the deformation of the prostate caused by transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) probe insertion is presented. This work is particularly useful during brachytherapy procedures, in which planning for radioactive seed insertion is performed on preoperative scans, and significant deformation of the prostate can occur during the procedure. The… (More)
