Widely used freehand 3D ultrasound systems do not provide corrections to effectively track breathing-induced moving organs. In this paper, a novel 4D ultrasound imaging method is proposed to create a sequence of breathing-corrected 3D ultrasound images from multiple 2D US image sequences, which is acquired by using a robotic arm to hold a 2D US probe and… CONTINUE READING
