Title : Visual Computing for Computer Assisted Interventions

Abstract :

Continuous improvement in medical imaging technology provides an ever increasing amount of high resolution, peri-operative and multi-modal image data. However, the sheer amount of image data, its objective intra-operative fusion and real-time visualization for diagnosis and therapy postulates the request for efficient image processing, visualization and data presentation techniques. This thesis focuses on developing visual computing solutions for improving computer assisted medical interventions. Advanced simulation, registration and visualization algorithms have been developed and implemented on Graphic Processing Units (GPU) for optimal efficiency, merging computation of the result and real-time visualization of the data. The methods are investigated in detail for three medical applications: Advanced in-situ medical AR visualization, simulation of US data from patient CT data and multi-modal registration of US and CT data, and evaluated on phantom and real patient data.
