Real-time simulation of medical ultrasound from CT images

Shams, Ramtin; Hartley, Richard; Navab, Nassir


Medical ultrasound interpretation requires a great deal of experience. Real-time simulation of medical ultrasound provides a cost-effective tool for training and easy access to a variety of cases and exercises. However, fully synthetic and realistic simulation of ultrasound is complex and extremely time-consuming. In this paper, we present a novel method for simulation of ultrasound images from 3D CT scans by breaking down the computations into a preprocessing and a run-time phase. The...[Show more]
