Master Thesis: The Influence of Confidence-Map on MR/US Registration

Supervision: Bernhard Fuerst

Recent advances in the development of ultrasound have led to significant improvements in the imaging quality and usability. However, shadowing artifacts, reflections, and attenuation are still significant problems. Confidence maps emphasize the uncertainty in the attenuated and shadow regions, which may contribute to the improvement of multi-modal image registration, such as MR/US. Recent developments in MR/US registration (such as MIND and LC2) show promising results, but still lack the ability to properly take the uncertainty of information in the US image into account.
