The objective of this study was to refine the traditional freehand cross wire phantom calibration method by modifying the mathematical formulation of the calibration problem to eliminate the need of imaging the intersecting point at different viewing angles and developing an actuator-assisted approach to facilitate quick and consistent collection of intersecting points spanning the entire image FOV.
In this study, actuator-assisted calibration was implemented on three point-based phantoms: (1) single cross wire phantom, (2) original collinear point target phantom, and (3) modified collinear point target phantom.
To better understand the potential benefits of actuator-based calibration, the ultrasound probe was also calibrated with the same cross wire phantom but using a traditional freehand cross wire phantom calibration approach [12].
