In this study, relations between dose cumulated in organs at risk and treatment based on different image guidance strategies (IG) of cervical cancer were analyzed.
Due to increased postoperative complications with anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), there has been an increasing interest in the use of cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA). Advancements in ...
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) has become the standard of care for suitable patients with peripherally located early stage non-small cell lung cancer. Lung SABR requires strict image-guided...
In this paper, we propose a deep learning approach for image registration by predicting deformation from image appearance. Since obtaining ground-truth deformation fields for training can be challengi...
OBJECTIVEThe cortical bone trajectory (CBT) technique for pedicle screw placement has gained popularity among spinal surgeons. It has been shown biomechanically to provide better fixation and improved...
Treatment of vascular malformations requires the placement of a needle within anatomically non well defined, pathological vessels, which may be as small as 1 mm, with the current state of ...
To prospectively evaluate the efficacy of real-time 3D CT-image guidance and CO2 portography during transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation.
Very few screenings of any kind will be possible during a woman's lifetime in most low-resource regions, where 80% of the half-million global cases of cervical cancer occur every year. Alt...
The purpose if this study is to assess the response to nerve root infiltration therapy in patients with cervical or lumbar disc herniations.
Assess clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients who undergo anterior cervical discectomy fusion (ACDF), transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) or posterior lumbar interbody fu...
A technique encompassing morphometry, densitometry, neural networks, and expert systems that has numerous clinical and research applications and is particularly useful in anatomic pathology for the study of malignant lesions. The most common current application of image cytometry is for DNA analysis, followed by quantitation of immunohistochemical staining.
Outgrowth of immature bony processes or bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE) from the VERTEBRAE, reflecting the presence of degenerative disease and calcification. It commonly occurs in cervical and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS.
A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
