2021 journal article

Performance Enhanced Ultrasound Probe Tracking With a Hemispherical Marker Rigid Body

IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ULTRASONICS FERROELECTRICS AND FREQUENCY CONTROL, 68(6), 2155–2163.

author keywords: Three-dimensional displays; Cameras; Ultrasonic imaging; Target tracking; Probes; Imaging; Two dimensional displays; 3-D freehand ultrasound (US); marker configuration; occlusion; ultrasound probe tracking
MeSH headings : Motion; Phantoms, Imaging; Ultrasonography
TL;DR: A hemispherical marker rigid body to hold passive noncoplanar markers so that the markers could be identified by the camera, mitigating self-occlusion is proposed, and the enlarged rotational range provides greater freedom for sonographers while performing examinations.

2021 article

Quantitative Study on Error Sensitivity in Ultrasound Probe Calibration with Hybrid Tracking

INTERNATIONAL ULTRASONICS SYMPOSIUM (IEEE IUS 2021).

By: Q. Cai n, T. Wu n, J. Lu, J. Prieto*, A. Rosenbaum*, J. Stringer*, X. Jiang n

author keywords: 3D freehand ultrasound; spatial calibration; error sensitivity
TL;DR: A linear relationship was found between the perturbation in imaging plane motion estimation and the error caused in the calibration solution, which showed a good error tolerance for the hybrid tracking enabled US probe calibration. (via Semantic Scholar)
