In this paper we describe a virtual ultrasound imaging system for the simulation of ultrasound guided needle insertion procedures, which is designed to improve the early training stages of interventional radiology trainees. A pair of calibrated magnetic 3D motion sensors are used to capture the position and orientation of a mock ultrasound probe and needle, whilst emulational ultrasound images are generated in real-time from a labelled volumetric data set that is non-rigidly aligned to a… CONTINUE READING
