Registration of CT Fluoroscopy Slices

in collaboration with Siemens Computed Tomography, Forchheim and Klinikum Grosshadern LMU

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of the liver is an interventional procedure applied to patients with unresectable primary liver tumors (HCC - hepatocellular carcinoma) and metastases. The percutaneous needle insertion is performed using different imaging guidance systems like CT, CT-Fluoroscopy, MRI or Ultrasound. We are investigating the registration of the CT-Fluoroscopy slices with the preinterventional CT volume. The aim is to display high resolution contrasted data in the operating room for aiding the needle insertion.
