22 June 2015, TUM, 03.13.010 Invited Talks from Robotics and Control Laboratory (RCL), University of British Columbia The Robotics and Control Laboratory (RCL) at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada, has been active in research projects involving diagnostic and interventional ultrasound (US) for over a decade. This session of talks will highlight recent US-related research projects performed at RCL under the supervision of Profs. Purang Abolmaesumi and Robert Rohling. The topics covered include: US-based prostate cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment planning; echocardiography analysis; US image processing for spinal anesthesia; and model-based US guidance for musculoskeletal interventions.
22 June 2015, 03.13.010, TUM Invited Talk by Dr. Sowmya Pleural Plaques, also called calcified pleura. and diffuse pleural thickening are two of the most common asbestos related pleural diseases (ARPD). They are currently identified non-invasively using medical imaging techniques. A fully automatic algorithm for 3D detection of calcified pleura in the diaphragmatic area and thickened pleura in the costal surfaces from multi detector computed tomography (MDCT) images has been developed and tested and will be presented in this talk.
19 June 2015, 03.13.010, TUM PhD defense of Christoph Hennersperger: Domain-Specific Modeling for Vascular Freehand Ultrasound Sonography is the modality of choice for initial examinations in vascular applications, but suffers from high operator-dependency and variations in acquisition parameters in 3D. With the goal of an improved quality and reliability, this thesis introduces a set of mathematical and technical methods, incorporating domain-specific knowledge in the whole ultrasound processing chain. This includes a novel solution for the acquisition of 3D+t US data as well as both physically and biologically inspired models for an improved processing of ultrasound data.
