Congratulations to Dr Bartlomiej Papiez, Linacre EPA JRF, a member of the team from Oxford’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering who won the MICCAI 2015 Challenge on Liver Ultrasound Tracking. Their winning entry was selected as the best performing method based on extensive validation using anonymised, independent annotated data sets coming from different research centres from around the world. Ultrasound, while being a non-invasive, non-ionising, low-cost and near real-time imaging modality, still requires dedicated fast and accurate motion compensation due to patient breathing, in order to further establish its clinical routine use in image-guided procedures.
