3D Ultrasound

Contact: C. Barillot
Scientific Context

We are principal contractor of an INRIA co-operative action on 3D Ultrasounds, in collaboration
 with EPIDAURE project in Sophia-Antipolis and ISA project in Nancy.

The goal of this project is to improve the exploitation of three-dimensional echographic images with an aim of assistance to the diagnosis and the therapeutic follow-up. It is about a new medical imaging  method, not too expensive, not very invasive for the patient and who allows to follow the movement of deformable anatomical structures in real time.

Research Directions

Within this framework our projects in progress go into two directions:
