Abstract
In this work, we propose a method for intraoperative reconstruction of a left atrial surface model for the application of cardiac ablation therapy. In this approach, the intraoperative point cloud is acquired by a tracked, 2D freehand intra-cardiac echocardiography device, which is registered and merged with a preoperative, high resolution left atrial surface model built from computed tomography data. For the surface reconstruction, we introduce a novel method to estimate the normal vector of the point cloud from the preoperative left atrial model, which is required for the Poisson Equation Reconstruction algorithm. In the current work, the algorithm is evaluated using a preoperative surface model from patient computed tomography data and simulated intraoperative ultrasound data. Factors such as intraoperative deformation of the left atrium, proportion of the left atrial surface sampled by the ultrasound, sampling resolution, sampling noise, and registration error were considered through a series of simulation experiments.
