Detecting tumors before they can be seen...

posted Jul 11, 2012, 10:47 AM by Stephen Aylward
Collaborative research between The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Kitware is featured in the July 6, 2012 online issue of the journal Radiology.

The work involves a new ultrasound system for detecting the effects that small, early-stage tumors have on surrounding vasculature: increased vessel dilation, increased vessel tortuosity, and angiogenesis.

This work builds upon, in part, Kitware's TubeTK library.
