Local ablation is a treatment alternative for patients with unresectable cancer. Irreversible-electroporation (IRE) is a non-thermal ablation technique that spares vessels and thus is predisposed for appropriate treatment of locally advanced pancreatic cancer. Correct needle positioning and parallel placement is a prerequisite for an efficient and complication-free IRE treatment. Therefore, we propose a 2D/3D planning and visualization solution to support the surgeon during this crucial procedure.
