Organ motion is one of the main problems in minimally invasive therapies in the abdomen. It is a recurring problem for almost all therapies, such as radiation therapy, and focused ultrasound treatment. Motion is arising from physiological processes like the respiratory and cardiac cycles, but also due to patient motion, or as a result of the treatment itself.
Fraunhofer MEVIS offers a software solution that can solve the motion problem for minimally invasive therapies. Based on an image stream showing the motion (for example from magnetic resonance or ultrasound imaging) the software analyses and predicts the motion ahead of time for real time application.
If you are vendor of a treatment system that does not yet compensate for motion and wonder how this would work in your treatment system: the toolbox can work as a plugin. Route your data stream first through our plugin and fetch data as if there was no motion! All complexity is hidden inside, like concurrent executions, temporal relations between data as well as logging and data persistence in background.
