Imaging artifacts of medical instruments in ultrasound-guided interventions.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: Real-time 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging has the potential to become a dominant imaging technique for minimally invasive surgery. One barrier to its widespread use is that surgical instruments generate imaging artifacts, which can obfuscate their location, orientation, and geometry and obscure nearby tissue. The purpose of this study was to identify and describe the types of artifacts which could be produced by metallic instruments during interventions guided by 3D ultrasou...
