ImFusion Suite supports registering 3D ultrasound data to MRI volumes for instance for brain-shift correction during neuro-surgery. In general, both registration of different ultrasound acquisitions throughout the procedure, as well multi-modal registration to different phases of an MRI scan enable optimal use of pre-operative information during neuro-surgery, as well as putting follow-up validation into context.

This video from our MICCAI 2013 conference presentation in Nagoya demonstrates fully automatic (global) registration of intra-operative ultrasound to MRI, while showing the best configuration that has been found during the processing. In a second step, a deformable refinement aligns the lesion with the more recent ultrasound acquisition to match the intra-operative setting. The full video of our talk is available online, as well as the corresponding publication.
