Real-time needle segmentation and tracking is very important in image-guided surgery, biopsy, and therapy. Due to its robustness to the addition of extraneous noise, the Hough Transform is one of the most powerful line-detection techniques nowadays and has been widely used in different areas. Unfortunately, its high computation needs often prevent it from being applied in real-time applications without the help of specially designed hardware. In order to solve this problem, a variety of fast… CONTINUE READING
