  • Patent number: 11062527
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems and articles of manufacture are disclosed to enable medical image visualization and interaction in a virtual environment. An example apparatus includes at least one processor and at least one memory including instructions. The instructions, when executed, cause the at least one processor to at least: generate a virtual environment for display of image content via a virtual reality display device, the image content to include a two-dimensional image overlaid on a three-dimensional volume; enable interaction with the image content in the virtual environment via an avatar, movement of the avatar to be correlated with an external input; adjust the image content in the virtual environment based on the interaction; and generate an output of image content from the virtual environment.

  • Publication number: 20210110597
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for medical imaging systems. In one embodiment, a method comprises acquiring three-dimensional image data with a three-dimensional imaging modality, generating an image of an anatomical structure within the three-dimensional image data with an angled portion of the anatomical structure rendered as at least partially transparent in the image, and displaying, via a display device, the image to a user. In this way, a three-dimensional anatomical structure, such as a vessel, may be visualized such that a user may view the inner wall without distortion.

  • Patent number: 8059900
    Abstract: A method includes generating a first response including a plurality of potential first objects of interest of a first shape from data regarding a region of interest (ROI), generating a second response including a plurality of second objects of interest for a second shape different than the first shape from the data regarding the ROI, and performing a morphological closing on the second response to produce a second cleaned response including a plurality of completed second objects. The method also includes decreasing the number of potential objects of interest in the first response by deleting any potential first objects that overlap any completed second objects to obtain a cleaned first response, and generating an image using at least one of the first cleaned response and the second cleaned response.

  • Patent number: 7565000
    Abstract: A system and method for segmenting and editing anatomical objects from medical images is disclosed. The system may be a medical diagnostic imaging system. A computer unit may execute computer software for segmenting anatomical objects from medical images. The computer software may extract an anatomical object from planar curves. The computer software may extract an anatomical object by computing the centerline of the anatomical object. A set of reformatted images may then be derived based on the centerline of the object. A user may then provide input in the form of user drawn contours on a plurality of reformatted images. In an embodiment the reformatted images may include a reformatted longitudinal view, a curved reformatted view, or a lumen view. The user drawn contours may correspond to the boundaries of the anatomical object to be segmented. The anatomical object may then be extracted based on the user drawn contours.

  • Patent number: 7558417
    Abstract: A method for analyzing a three-dimensional (3D) image representative of an initial volume of interest (VOI) containing a lesion is disclosed. The 3D image has an associated binary map having voxels associated with a thresholded variance map of the initial VOI. The initial VOI has boundaries that may be defined by a cube. A final VOI is determined that is less than the initial VOI, where the final VOI is a function of the number of transitions from a boundary voxel to a filtered voxel at an outer boundary of the lesion. The final VOI is then analyzed to determine a nodule consistency class, classified based upon the computed nodule consistency class by applying a voxel-clustering algorithm, and displayed with respect to three classifications of tissue.
