Paper Abstract

Image guidance aids neurosurgeons in making critical clinical decisions of safe maximal resection of diseased tissue. The brain however undergoes significant non-linear structural deformation on account of dura opening and tumor resection. Deformable registration of pre-operative ultrasound to intra-operative ultrasound may be used in mapping of pre-operative planning MRI to intraoperative ultrasound. Such mapping may aid in determining tumor resection margins during surgery. In this work, brain structures visible in pre- and intra-operative 3D ultrasound were used for automatic deformable registration. A Gaussian mixture model was used to automatically segment structures of interest in pre- and intra-operative ultrasound and patch-based normalized cross-correlation was used to establish correspondences between segmented structures. An affine registration based on correspondences was followed by B-spline based deformable registration to register pre- and intra-operative ultrasound. Manually labelled landmarks in pre- and intra-operative ultrasound were used to quantify the mean target registration error. We achieve a mean target registration error of 1.43±0.8 mm when validated with 17 pre- and intra-operative ultrasound image volumes of a public dataset.
