Abstract

This research focuses on developing visual assistance for ultrasound echographic measurement. Proposed system performs a direct projection of the intersectional imagery onto the patient's body by an optical projector. The surface shape of the patient is taken into consideration for image projection. Optical shape measurement and graphical synthesis techniques are combined for producing distortion-free images so that the physician can intuitively manipulate the ultrasonic probe and observe the echography in the identical physical space.
