The use of standard CT-Scans for the development of an anatomical atlas for Ultrasound TomographyMS77

Ultrasound Tomography (UST) may be an aid, together with Electrical Impedance Tomography, to monitor the lung in ICU environment. One approach to solve the UST inverse problem is to use Bayes's Theorem. The prior probability density function is in term of tissues sound velocities of the human thorax. Standard CT-scans may be used for anatomical information after correction of the scapula position and correction of the skin geometry due to the belt of transducers placement.
