Abstract: US-guided neuronavigation exploits the simplicity of use and minimal invasiveness of Ultrasound (US) imaging and the high tissue resolution and signal-to-noise ratio of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to guide brain surgeries. More specifically, the intra-operative 3D US images are combined with pre-operative MR images to accurately localise the course of instruments in the operative field with minimal invasiveness. Multimodal image registration of 3D US and MR images is an essential part of such system. In this paper, we present a complete software framework that enables the registration US and MR brain scans based on a multi resolution deformable transform, tackling elastic deformations (i.e. brain shifts) possibly occurring during the surgical procedure. The framework supports also simpler and faster registration techniques, based on rigid or affine transforms, and enables the interactive visualisation and rendering of the overlaid US and MRI volumes. The registration was experime ntally validated on a public dataset of realistic brain phantom images, at different levels of artificially induced deformations. (More)
