3D US Imaging System for the Guidance of Uterine Adenoma and Uterine Bleeding RF Ablation
In this paper, a 3D US imaging system for the guidance of RF ablation of uterine adenoma and uterine bleeding was developed to increase the operation success by accurate localization of the tumor position during treatment. A rotational scanning using an abdominal probe was employed. To reduce the distortion produced when the rotational axis is not collinear with the central beam of the probe, a new 3D reconstruction algorithm using 360° scanning is derived. Then, a fast 3D needle segmentation algorithm is used to find the electrode direction and determine the tip of electrode. Experiments with a water phantom demonstrated the feasibility of our 3D US image based guidance system.
