Study and development of the computer-aided prostate brachytherapy project (PROCUR)
Technologies: C++, Visual Studio, MFC, OpenGL 2D/3D Matching Algorithm
The technique of brachytherapy involves inserting grains of radioactive iodine directly into the prostate to destroy cancer cells. The project goal of brachytherapy for prostate computer is to offer the urologist the day of the operation an MRI image, recalculated in an MRI image volume acquired before surgery, each ultrasound image. This allows him to have a better anatomical definition and better accuracy for the placement of these grains.
Reading and management of MRI image in DICOM format in 3 planes
Video acquisition and management of ultrasound images in the transverse plane
Management of the 2D image segmentation for creating 3D volume
Calculation of 3D surface triangulation and registration volumes MRI / Echo
Calculation and display of an equivalent MRI image to the selected ultrasound image
