18 March 2015 Sparse reconstruction of liver cirrhosis from monocular mini-laparoscopic sequences
Author Affiliations +
Mini-laparoscopy is a technique which is used by clinicians to inspect the liver surface with ultra-thin laparoscopes. However, so far no quantitative measures based on mini-laparoscopic sequences are possible. This paper presents a Structure from Motion (SfM) based methodology to do 3D reconstruction of liver cirrhosis from mini-laparoscopic videos. The approach combines state-of-the-art tracking, pose estimation, outlier rejection and global optimization to obtain a sparse reconstruction of the cirrhotic liver surface. Specular reflection segmentation is included into the reconstruction framework to increase the robustness of the reconstruction. The presented approach is evaluated on 15 endoscopic sequences using three cirrhotic liver phantoms. The median reconstruction accuracy ranges from 0.3 mm to 1 mm.
