Munich, October 9, 2015 (Full Day)
Ultrasound (US) imaging is a widely used medical imaging technique. As US has high temporal resolution and is non-invasive, it is an appealing choice for applications which require tracking and tissue motion analysis, such as motion compensation in image-guided intervention and therapy. Specifically, we want to address the issue of respiratory motion in the liver.
While there is a large number of relevant works in motion tracking, it is difficult to compare the reported tracking strategies. Critical factors are the lack of a public dataset, the variation in tracking objective and validation strategies. The aim of the challenge is to present the current state-of-the-art in automated tracking of anatomical landmarks in the liver and compare different methods
