How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Purpose: To validate a simulation environment for virtual planning of percutaneous cryoablation of renal tumors. Materials and methods: Prospectively collected data from 19 MR-guided procedures were used for validation of the simulation model. Volumetric overlap of the simulated ablation zone volume (Σ) and the segmented ablation zone volume (S;...

Clinicians benefit from online treatment planning systems, through off-site accessibility, data sharing and professional interaction. As well as enhancing clinical value, incorporation of simulation tools affords innovative avenues for open-ended, multi-disciplinary research collaboration. An extensible system for clinicians, technicians, manufactu...
Conference Paper
In teleradiology a vast amount of medical images is sent from one location to another location. If the network infrastructure between the locations is poor, users experience long download times or, if a client application is used, application lags. To solve this issue lossless compression algorithms can be used as a first option. Unfortunately thes...
Conference Paper
In teleradiology doctors view the image data of a healthcare institution from a remote site. To do so they typically connect to an image repository, download the necessary data and finally view it in a locally installed DICOM viewer. Recent research activities in teleradiology [1, 2, 3, 4] focus on the implementation of ubiquitously accessible web-...

Article
PurposeRadiofrequency ablation (RFA) is one of the most popular and well-standardized minimally invasive cancer treatments (MICT) for liver tumours, employed where surgical resection has been contraindicated. Less-experienced interventional radiologists (IRs) require an appropriate planning tool for the treatment to help avoid incomplete treatment...
Presentation
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a well known minimally invasive medical treatment to ablate tumour tissue in the liver [1]. To facilitate the planning of RFA, a software tool is required to simulate and potentially optimise the cancer treatment procedure. Most of the existing lesion prediction software for RFA has been developed based on the nite...
Poster
The Go-Smart project provides a generic, open-ended, web-based treatment simulation inter- face for clinicians, manufacturers and biomedical researchers in the eld of Minimally Invasive Cancer Treatments (MICTs)[1]. To achieve open-endedness, manufacturers and researchers must be able to extend the set of numerical models, simulatable equipment and...
Conference Paper
Presentation of [Go-Smart: Web-based Computational Modeling of Minimally Invasive Cancer Treatments] at EHB2015 in Iasi. Available here: http://office.numa.ie/presentation/ehb2015/
Article
Full-text available
The web-based Go-Smart environment is a scalable system that allows the prediction of minimally invasive cancer treatment. Interventional radiologists create a patient-specific 3D model by semi-automatic segmentation and registration of pre-interventional CT (Computed Tomography) and/or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) images in a 2D/3D browser env...
Poster
Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are nowadays used for numerical computation , beyond their original purpose of graphics accelerators. Mature hardware and GPU software tools and libraries support double precision and memory correction. GPU accelerated computational fluid dynamics has gained attention in both academia and industry. In this article,...
Conference Paper
Differential equations are often directly solvable by analytical means only in their one dimensional version. Partial differential equations are generally not solvable by analytical means in two and three dimensions, with the exception of few special cases. In all other cases, numerical approximation methods need to be utilized. One of the most pop...
Thesis
Full-text available
This research project develops an adaptable framework for simulating hydroelastic interaction using acceleration potential techniques. Finite Element Methods are used to solve for the motion of the fluid and of an elastic beam, which are coupled through Bernoulli’s nonlinear pressure equation and a nonlinear acceleration potential. Sensitivity test...
