Efficient, robust and reliable interpolation for therapy planning applications

Project Description

This project is part of a large ongoing effort aiming at developing a therapy planning tool for tumor ablation (e.g. hepatic) using different modalities (e.g. radio frequency). This tool combines validated numerical models that predict the energy dose delivered and the damage to the tissue with efficient mathematical algorithms enabling real time therapy planning and adaption. The mesh requirements are typically different for the different models developed in the tool as well as for the visualization and manipulation of data. To ensure efficient and accurate communication between these models, robust interpolation routines need to be developed. Aim of this project is to develop efficient and reliable interpolation routines to be included within the planning tool.
