Multimodal visualizations for pre-operative neurosurgical planning

  title={Multimodal visualizations for pre-operative neurosurgical planning},
  author={Diana R{\"o}ttger and Sandy Engelhardt and Stefan M{\"u}ller},
In pre-operative neurosurgical planning, the visualization of structures at risk within their anatomical context is beneficial to answer clinical questions, such as the spatial and functional relation of structures or the definition of the incision point for the intervention. Therefore, we present a multimodal visualization approach, Cav- ity Slicing, which is inspired by focus-context rendering and intuitively reveals inner structures of the brain. Additionally, enhanced visualization…

Visualization of Needle Access Pathway and a Five-DoF Evaluation

The experimental results show that the visualization method adopted greatly influences insertion accuracy and a new visualization technique is proposed that intuitively conveys placement and orientation information and enables a higher quality of insertion.

The State of the Art of Spatial Interfaces for 3D Visualization

A taxonomy of interaction technique for 3D visualization is introduced, organized along two axes: the primary source of input on the one hand and the visualization task they support on the other hand.



Pre-Operative Planning of Brain Tumor Resections

A set of multimodal 2D and 3D views conveys the relation between the lesion and the various structures at risk and also depicts data uncertainty to facilitate efficient interactions while providing a comprehensible visualization.

High-Quality Multimodal Volume Rendering for Preoperative Planning of Neurosurgical Interventions

An application for planning of individual neurosurgical approaches with high-quality interactive multimodal volume rendering that allows to plan the optimal skin incision and opening of the skull tailored to the underlying pathology and visualize superficial brain anatomy, function and metabolism.

Interactive Visualization of Multimodal Volume Data for Neurosurgical Tumor Treatment

Methods for the visual exploration of the path to the structures of interest, to enhance anatomical landmarks, and to provide additional depth indicators are proposed to create expressive visualizations at interactive frame rates to reduce time‐consuming and complex interaction with the medical data.

Novel interaction techniques for neurosurgical planning and stereotactic navigation

The line widget from VTK is extended to allow surgeons to control the shape of the region of the brain that they can visually crop away during exploration and surgery, and the cropping tool is integrated with the image-guided navigation system used for epilepsy neurosurgery.

Multimodal and multi-informational neuronavigation

The first experiences show that being able to access pre-operative functional and anatomical data within the neuronavigation system adds valuable support for the surgical act in many surgical contexts.

Interactive visualization of fused fMRI and DTI for planning brain tumor resections

This paper presents interactive visualization techniques that combine DTI, fMRI and structural MRI to assist the planning of brain tumor surgery and enables the surgeon to explore the pre-operative situation.

Visualizing inner structures in multimodal volume data

This paper presents a new approach to visualize inner structures in multimodal volume data, which is based in the utilization of cutting tools, and finds suitable strategies to integrate characteristics of multiple data sets into a single visual representation.

Diffusion Tensor and Functional MRI Fusion with Anatomical MRI for Image-Guided Neurosurgery

The initial experience with fMRI and DT-MRI for surgical planning and guidance in ten brain tumor cases is presented.

Preoperative and Intraoperative Diffusion Tensor Imaging-based Fiber Tracking in Glioma Surgery

Comparing preoperative and intraoperative fiber tracking visualizes a marked shifting and deformation of major white matter tracts because of tumor removal that emphasizes the need for an intraoperative update of navigation systems during resection of deep-seated tumor portions near eloquent brain areas.

Integrated 3D Visualization of fMRI and DTI tractography

The focus of this poster is the addition of the track geometry to an existing fMRI visualization application with 3D streamlines representing the DTI tracks, several functional areas, the vasculature and the underlying anatomy clipped at an oblique angle.
