liver cut

Paper accepted at IJCARS!

Our paper “Handling topological changes during elastic registration” has been accepted at IJCARS (extended MICCAI paper):

In this work we present a method, which allows detecting cuts of elastic objects from a monoscopic video stream.

Based on the motion of features in the video, a virtual mechanical model is moved and from discontinuities in the motion, cuts are detected and propagated to the model and its internal structures.

An extensive evaluation on highly elastic silicone bands, an in-vivo liver and an ex-vivo kidney show the accuracy of our approach.
