Mars 2019: Vi har fått publisert en artikkel i Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology; «A Methodical Quantification of Needle Visibility and Echogenicity in Ultrasound Images» i samarbeid med TU Delft i Nederland.
Fra artikkelen: During ultrasound-guided percutaneous interventions, needle localization can be a challenge. To increase needle visibility, enhancements of both the imaging methods and the needle surface properties have been investigated. However, a methodical approach to compare potential solutions is currently unavailable. The work described here involves automated image acquisition, analysis and reporting techniques to collect large amounts of data efficiently, delineate relevant factors and communicate effects
