3D Kidney Reconstruction from 2D Ultrasound Images Conference Paper uri icon


  • The use and analysis of ultrasound images (US) is one of the safest and most accessible ways to monitor and diagnose illness; however, expert knowledge is required for the interpretation of these images. The aim of this project is to propose a practical and low cost alternative for the visualization of anatomical structures in 3D from 2D B mode US images acquired as a video. In particular, this project focused on the 3D reconstruction of the kidney, which is an organ of great importance in keeping the blood clean and maintaining the body’s chemical balance. Our strategy consisted of acquiring the images with portable US equipment and applying digital image processing techniques such as filtering and segmentation in order, to then perform the 3D reconstruction of the anatomical structure of interest. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
