Image Thickness Correction for Navigation with 3D Intra-cardiac Ultrasound Catheter
In this paper we present an algorithm to correct 3D reconstruction errors of 3D ultrasound catheter caused by ultrasound image thickness. We also provide a method to quickly measure ultrasound image plane’s thickness. With thickness correction registration accuracy of navigation system using 3D ultrasound catheters can be improved by 20%.
