Identification Of Respiratory Phases In A Medical Procedure
WARF: P200030US01

Inventors: Bryan Bednarz, Sydney Jupitz, Jhimli Mitra, Thomas Foo, Desmond Yeo, Sudhanya Chatterjee

The Invention
The present disclosure relates to automatically determining respiratory phases (e.g., endinspiration/expiration respiratory phases) in real time using ultrasound beamspace data. The respiratory phases may be used subsequently in a therapy or treatment (e.g., imageguided radiation-therapy (IGRT)) for precise dose-delivery. In certain implementations, vessel bifurcation may be tracked and respiration phases determined in real time using the tracked vessel bifurcations to facilitate respiration gating of the treatment or therapy.
