PURPOSE In image-guided therapy, real-time visualization of the anatomy and adjustments in the therapy plan due to anatomical motions during the procedure is of outmost importance. 3D ultrasound has the potential to enable this real-time monitoring; however, nonrigid registration of a sequence of 3D ultrasound volumes remains to be a challenging problem. The authors present our recent results on the development of a computationally inexpensive feature-based registration algorithm for elastic… CONTINUE READING
