Dr. Peter Hassenpflug
Work in progress
My research is in the general area of three-dimensional (3-D) medical ultrasound imaging, within the Medical Imaging Group. Currently I am working on techniques to build a freehand 3-D ultrasound system, which does not require a cumbersome position sensor but is nevertheless sufficiently accurate for quantitative volume measurement work. This is part of the EPSRC project Clinically Practical Freehand Three-Dimensional Ultrasound.
My PhD project on vascular-based registration for image guided liver surgery was carried out at the Div. Medical and Biological Informatics at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg. Further information about this work can be obtained here.
