Symmetric Biomechanically Guided Prone to Supine Breast Image Registration

Ann Biomed Eng
PMCID: 4690842
PMID: 26577254
DOI: 10.1007/s10439-015-1496-z

[…] ies was generated. Gravity was added as a body force acting on the unloaded configuration in the anterior and posterior directions to simulate the prone and supine gravity loaded configurations using NiftySim. The parameters of the geometry were chosen such that the numerical phantom geometry was comparable to a medium sized breast in terms of volume, extent and chest diameter. The left-right, ant […]


The NifTK software platform for image guided interventions: platform overview and NiftyLink messaging

Int J Comput Assist Radiol Surg
PMCID: 4338364
PMID: 25408304
DOI: 10.1007/s11548-014-1124-7

[…] ibrary dependencies Our experience is that most medical imaging researchers are not familiar with large-scale software projects. We have previously developed NiftyReg [], NiftySeg [], NiftyRec [] and NiftySim []. By being small and easy to build, they have received many downloads.Make maximum reuse of existing projects; contribute code back to the open-source community The code reuse policy partic […]
