  annote = {In this paper we describe a method for automatic electrode
    localization in soft tissue from radio-frequency (RF) signal. The
    method is exploiting a property of the Radon Transform, that
    allows to localize a line-segment in 3D data. The method directly
    processes the radio-frequency signal provided by the ultrasound
    probe. Thus, there is no need for ultrasound (US) image
    reconstruction. The method is able to detect line-segments with
    missing pieces. The low computational cost allows to process data
    fast. The algorithm was tested on a radio-frequency signal
    acquired by scanning a phantom containing a thin metal electrode
    of 150um in diameter. The experiments show that the developed
    technique is capable of reliably finding an arbitrarily positioned
    line-segment in a 3D data.},
