This module was originally developed to enable registration between segmented MRI and Ultrasound images of the prostate. The registration approach is based on hierarchical deformable registration of the smoothed distance maps of the segmentation masks (see details in the publication provided in the references section), and thus is not modality- or organ-specific, and can be applied in other applications.
- MRI-ultrasound fusion biopsy of the prostate (primary)
- therapy planning
- treatment response assessment
None at this time ... stay tuned!
