The Baby Explorer software application is designed to capture data from an ultrasound
machine and process the data to provide a 3D volume rendering of a baby months before it
is born. Images can be acquired in either parallel or fan motion directly from a
conventional ultrasound system. The captured images form a data set from which a
volume is created.
An essential part of volume visualization is the ability to review the data interactively,
including the flexibility to rotate, scale and view objects from perspectives that enhance
the anatomy of interest. The application provides tools to extract meaningful information
in a rapid, non-invasive manner with benefits from improved image quality and
visualization clarity.
In the 2D window, click LiveVideo.
2. The application starts the live video feed from the connected ultrasound machine.
3. Right-click anywhere on the window to start image acquisition. The application
displays a red circle indicating that acquisition has begun.
4. Scan a region of interest. Note that there is a time limit for acquisition. If you exceed
the time limit, the application stops the acquisition and emits an audible beep.
5. Right-click to stop the acquisition.
6. The application removes the red circle and displays the acquired image at the bottom
of the window.
Selecting the Region of Interest
You can adjust the Region of Interest (ROI) to exclude non-essential information visible in
the 2D window. This is especially useful before loading the sweep into the 3D window
because it speeds up the loading process.
> To adjust the ROI
1. Click one of the four grab handles on the yellow rectangle that defines the ROI and
drag it to the desired position.
