To ensure accurate targeting and repeatability, 3D TRUS-guided biopsies require registration to determine coordinate transformations to (1) incorporate pre-procedure biopsy plans and (2) compensate for inter-session prostate motion and deformation between repeat biopsy sessions. We evaluated prostate surface- and image-based 3D-to-3D TRUS registration by measuring the TRE of manually marked, corresponding, intrinsic fiducials in the whole gland and peripheral zone, and also evaluated the error… CONTINUE READING
