Automatic extraction of bone surfaces from 3D ultrasound images in orthopaedic trauma cases

Abstract

3D ultrasound (US) imaging has the potential to become a powerful alternative imaging modality in orthopaedic surgery as it is radiation-free and can produce 3D images (in contrast to fluoroscopy) in near-real time. Conventional B-mode US images, however, are characterized by high levels of noise and reverberation artifacts, image quality is user-dependent… (More)
