Abstract [en]

Image-guided neurosurgery interventions are becoming sur- gical procedure routines. We suggest a novel method for automatic marker localization in X-ray images for Leksell SurgiPlan® which is an image-based neurosergical treat- ment planning software provided by Elekta Instrument AB. We implemented an algorithm for fiducial marker localiza- tion based on feature detection, classification and prior geo- metrical knowledge of the markers. Automatic localization ca help to decrease the human error associated with manual registration of these fiducial markers which is the current applied method for X-ray images in Leksell SurgiPlan®.
