OBJECTIVE The aim of our article is to give an overview of the current and future possibilities of real-time image fusion involving ultrasound. We present a review of the existing English-language peer-reviewed literature assessing this technique, which covers technical solutions (for ultrasound and endoscopic ultrasound), image fusion in several anatomic regions, and electromagnetic needle tracking. CONCLUSION The recent progress of real-time ultrasound in image fusion may provide several… CONTINUE READING
