This title provides a global survey of the rapidly growing field of image-guided therapy. You find detailed coverage of a wide range of key topics, from MRI-guided surgery, robotic cardiac surgery, and brachytherapy and hyperthermia for cancer treatment . to modern procedures in neurosurgery, laser cosmetic therapy, and ultrasound-guided high intensity focused ultrasound therapy for non-invasive tumor treatment. You learn the fundamentals of imaging and therapeutic modalities and their capabilities and constraints in implementation of image-guided therapy systems.13.2.1 3D Coordinate System Three-dimensional imaging for image-guided therapy requires that a 3D coordinate system be established for the ... Newer ultrasound technology can provide 3D images either by using spatial trackers as adjunct devices, or with 2D transducer arrays . Ultrasound has the advantages of patient safety, low cost, real-time user interaction, and high temporal resolution . It cananbsp;...
