Abstract : Purpose: Performing a transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) prostate biopsy is at the heart of the current prostate cancer detection procedure. With today's 2D live ultrasound (US) imaging equipment, this task remains complex due to the poor visibility of cancerous tissue on TRUS images and the limited anatomical context available in the 2D TRUS plane. This paper presents a rigid 2D/3DUS registration method for navigated prostate biopsy. This allows continuous localization of 15 the biopsy trajectory during the procedure. Methods: We proposed an organ-based approach to achieve real-time rigid registration without the need for any probe localization device. The registration method combines image similarity and geometric proximity of detected features. Additions to our previous work include a multi-level approach and the use of a rejection rate favouring the best matches. Their aim is to increase the 20 accuracy and time performances. These modifications and their in-depth evaluation on real clinical cases and comparison to this previous work are described. We performed static and dynamic evaluations along biopsy trajectories on a very large amount of data acquired under uncontrolled routine conditions. The computed transforms are compared to a ground truth obtained either from corresponding manually detected fiducials or from an already evaluated registration method. Results: All results show that the current method outperforms its previous version, both in terms of accuracy (the average error reported here is 12 to 17% smaller depending on the experiment) and processing time (from 20 to 60 times faster compared to the previous implementation). The dynamic registration experiment demonstrates that the method can be successfully used for continuous tracking of the biopsy location w.r.t the prostate at a rate that varies between 5 and 15 30 Hz. Conclusions: This work shows that on the fly 2D/3DUS registration can be performed very efficiently on biopsy trajectories. This allows us to plan further improvements in prostate navigation and a clinical transfer.
