PercutaneousPathDesigner is a Slicer4 module designed to display bundles of needle path candidates to avoid blood vessels, bones and specific anatomies and create the path from the bundle.
 +
The bundles of path candidates is calculated based on a target point, a skin model and an obstacle model.
 +
After the calculation, you can obtain possible trajectories to avoid the obstacles as bundles of path candidates.
 +
This bundle expression may help you grasp safety paths easily. 
 +
Furthermore, it is possible to evaluate the each path on the bundles based on the length and the trajectory comparing with the longest path and the shortest path.
 +
The location of the skin entry point of each path can be modified by extending and shrinking the path.
 +
The target point and the skin entry point you modified on the selected path could be output as a MarkupsFiducial List.

PercutaneousPathDesigner is a Slicer4 module designed to display bundles of needle path candidates to avoid blood vessels, bones and specific anatomies and create the path from the bundle. The bundles of path candidates is calculated based on a target point, a skin model and an obstacle model. After the calculation, you can obtain possible trajectories to avoid the obstacles as bundles of path candidates. This bundle expression may help you grasp safety paths easily. Furthermore, it is possible to evaluate the each path on the bundles based on the length and the trajectory comparing with the longest path and the shortest path. The location of the skin entry point of each path can be modified by extending and shrinking the path. The target point and the skin entry point you modified on the selected path could be output as a MarkupsFiducial List. You can clean up the models generated from this module.

Use Cases

PercutaneousPathDesigner is a useful tool for planning needle insertion. Percutaneous thermal ablations including radio frequency, microwave and cryotherapy requires needle trajectories to avoid blood vessels, bones and specific anatomies to reach probes to target around tumors. Needle biopsy also requires safety path to gather multiple tissue. For these cases, this module can help to obtain the path candidates based on the target point, a segmented model of the avoidable region and another segmented model which represents skin entry surface.
