Needle position during 125I seed implantation: accurately recognized by sagittal transrectal ultrasonography?

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the variation of probe rotation angles for detecting a single needle using sagittal images of transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS). A phantom study was performed. One needle was inserted through each of 10 holes of the template, and variations in the probe rotation angles for detecting the needle were measured. The mean… (More)
