Samenvatting

The apparatus is adapted to detect a tip of an interventional tool based on at least two ultrasound images reconstructed for different beam steering angles within a volumetric region comprising said tool. The apparatus comprises an image processing unit, which includes a tip detection module configured to perform a tip tool detection procedure. The tip tool detection procedure involves identifying shadow regions of the tool in the at least two ultrasound images and calculating the position of the tip of the tool within the volumetric region.
