Abstract

Previous research on Trans-urethral Ultrasound (TUUS) imaging has shown promise that TUUS will become a viable new intra-operative tool. Prior work focused on the processing of TUUS data in order to obtain useful clinical information, however intra-operative imaging issues (real-time feedback) have not been fully addressed. This paper describes a unique framework for efficient processing which can be used for intra-operative imaging. The methods describe a segmentation pipeline which meet the requirements of intra-operative imaging in prostate brachytherapy. The implementation of the process is described and the process is evaluated for efficiency and accuracy.
