12 April 2005 Ultrasound-guided ablation system for laparoscopic liver surgery
Author Affiliations +
This work describes the design and implementation of a system for liver tumor ablation guided by ultrasound. Features of the system include spatially registered ultrasound visualization, ultrasound volume reconstruction, and interactive targeting. Early results with phantom experiments indicate a targeting accuracy of 5-10mm. The system serves as a foundation for further clinical studies and applications of image-guided therapy to liver procedures.
