Towards a More Objective Visualization of the Midbrain and its Surroundings Using 3D Transcranial Ultrasound
54. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Klinische Neurophysiologie und Funktionelle Bildgebung (DGKN), Halle, GER, March 2010 (bib)

Ultrasound investigations of the midbrain have been proven to be sensitive for the detection of changes associated with movement disorders [Berg et al., 2008]. A critical issue about this method remains a dependency upon the observer and his experience. To reduce inter-rater variability, a 3D analysis of e.g. echo-hyperintense Substantia nigra (SN) structures would be beneficial. Therefore we are on the way to develope a system which enables us to reconstruct a more objective 3D structure on the basis of the far used 2D ultrasound data.
