  annote = {This thesis proposal deals with the problematic of
    surgical tool localization in biological tissue from ultrasound
    data. It briefly discusses the principles of ultrasound
    imaging. The report afterwards summarizes the state-of-the-art in
    the domain of ultrasound data processing. Next chapters describe
    our contributions through two conference articles that propose
    methods for object localization in ultrasound image data. The
    thesis proposal is concluded with a summary of the foreseen
    research. We will focus on: (i) improvement of the developed
    method in terms of computational complexity and localization
    accuracy, (ii) radio-frequency signal processing with a view to
    make the boundary detection more precise.},
