Abstract : Minimally invasive image-guided interventions (IGIs) are time and cost efficient, minimize unintended damage to healthy tissues, and lead to faster patient recovery. Advanced three-dimensional (3D) image processing is a critical need for navigation during IGIs. However, achieving on-demand performance, as required by IGIs, for these image processing operations using software-only implementations is challenging because of the sheer size of the 3D images, and memory and compute intensive nature of the operations. This dissertation, therefore, is geared toward developing high-performance 3D image processing architectures, which will enable improved intraprocedural visualization and navigation capabilities during IGIs.
