Overview
We are using video cameras to give vision to the ultrasound transducer. This could eventually lead to automated analysis of the ultrasound data within its anatomical context, as derived from an ultrasound probe with its own visual input about the patient’s exterior. We are exploring both probe-mounted cameras, as well as optically-tracked stand-alone cameras which could view a larger portion of the patient's exterior.
