Abstract

Virtual reality (VR) training simulators of liver needle insertion in the hepatic area of breathing virtual patients currently need 4D data acquisitions as a prerequisite. Here, first a population-based breathing virtual patient 4D atlas can be built and second the requirement of a dose-relevant or expensive acquisition of a 4D data set for a new static 3D patient can be mitigated by warping the mean atlas motion. The breakthrough contribution of this work is the construction and reuse of population-based learned 4D motion models.
