Finite element based inverse problems techniques are seen capable of
accurately reproducing the selective heating of the nanoparticle
mediated photothermal therapies. The in-vivo recovered spatial map of
optical parameters may also be used as a quantitative marker of the
Model Assisted Monitoring
Non-damaging laser test pulses may simultaneously be used for patient
safety to verify the application position as well as used for
calibration the parabolic bioheat transfer model on a patient specific basis.
Deformation Based Morphometry - Large Deformation Registration
A multi-resolution approach is applied within a pipeline of affine and
diffeomorphic registration to achieve a dense large deformation mapping.
Imaging to Mesh Generation Pipeline
A schematic of the Imaging-to-FEM mesh pipeline is shown. The hexahedral
mesh shown has distinct regions for the prostate and laser.
