Our software automatically aligns the MR image planes on the tracked device during interventional MRI procedures, based on optical and MRI position sensors.
The MR images are analyzed to track MRI markers attached to the device and derive the device position and orientation (3D pose). In parallel, a 3D camera allows to similarly detect visual markers attached to the device, as in standard motion capture.
Data fusion allows for online automatic registration of camera reference frame to MRI reference frame.
Multi-sensor tracking improves reliability: when markers are not visible with one sensor, the other sensor remains to provide continuous tracking.
Motion prediction improves the fluidity of MR image plane alignment.
