Image fusion enables us to perform a direct, on-screen correlation between a current ultrasound study and a previously performed CT or MRI exam. Using this ability, the spatial resolution of the ultrasound image can be added to the superior overview of a CT or MRI providing additional clinical confidence, lesions first noted on CT or MRI may be more easily detected and characterised on ultrasound and interventions such as biopsies and tumour ablations may be guided by a combination of modalities. Participants in this symposium will become familiar with how image fusion adds another dimension both to diagnostic and interventional ultrasound.

Abstract

Image fusion enables us to perform a direct, on-screen correlation between a current ultrasound study and a previously performed CT or MRI exam. Using this ability, the spatial resolution of the ultrasound image can be added to the superior overview of a CT or MRI providing additional clinical confidence, lesions first noted on CT or MRI may be more easily detected and characterised on ultrasound and interventions such as biopsies and tumour ablations may be guided by a combination of modalities. Participants in this symposium will become familiar with how image fusion adds another dimension both to diagnostic and interventional ultrasound.
