Objective. The aim of our study was to evaluate MRI/Ultrasonography fusion accuracy depending on three ultrasonographic parameters. Method. An ultrasonography and MRI compatible model was created, consisting of a plastic box, which contained 3 objects. MRI scans were performed with 128 sagittal slices. The objects were segmented and 3D reconstructions were created. A special ultrasound adapter with 3 reflective markers was fixed to the ultrasound probe. Thus, the probe could be tracked by the… CONTINUE READING
