Caramella D., Braccini G., Battolla L., Bartolozzi C., Cartei F., Salvetti O. Sonographic volume processing of malignant prostatic lesions. In: CAR '91 - Computer Assisted Radiology. International Symposium. (Berlin, Germany, 3 - 6 July 1991). Proceedings, pp. 166 - 170. H.U. Lemke et al. (eds.). Springer-Verlag, 1991.
The aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of a precise definition of the volumetric and spatial features of malignant prostatic lesions needing radiation therapy and a later follow-up. The modeling procedure is mainly composed of three sequential phases: a) automatic acquisition of time sequences of 2D echotomograms; b) 3D reconstruction of images; c) generation of a spatial geometrical model. A software system has been specifically designed and implemented for digital image handling and management. The preliminary c1inical applications in the evaluation of patients with prostatic cancer showed promising results.
