headline-marker Max Rockstroh presents new SDC standard in Canada

Max Rockstroh presents the new IEEE standard “Service-oriented Device Connectivity (SDC)” at two major Canadian conferences. His lecture at the Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Conference (CMBEC) in Ottawa is on: “SDC – A new Interoperability Standard for Electromedical Devices – IEEE 11073”. At the “International Conference on Robotics and Automation” (ICRA) in Montréal he will speak about “The IEEE11073 SDC – Standard Family: Networked Medical Devices in Operating Room and Clinic”.
The open interface is a joint project of the OR.Net e.V. research partners. It should pave the way for a manufacturer- and device-neutral networking of medical technology components.



headline-marker FMT-Abstractbook published

All scientific contributions of this year’s doctoral workshop “Future Med Technologies” (FMT) have now been published in an abstract book. The abstracts cover the topics: Model-assisted therapy and future operating room, Active Assisted Living (AAL), non-invasive imaging and image-assisted intervention.
The aim of the event organized by ICCAS in March was the exchange between doctoral candidates, particularly with regional companies, in order to jointly launch intelligent medical technology.

headline-marker Marianne Maktabi wins poster award at MGG/MDCV-Conference

Marianne Maktabi’s presentation of the research results on “Hyperspectral Imaging during esophagectomy for the measurement of ischemic conditioning effects of the gastric conduit”” won this year’s poster prize at the joint conference of the societys: “Mitteldeutsche Gesellschaft für Gastroenterologie” (MGG) and “Mitteldeutsche Chirurgenvereinigung” (MDCV). In this work, HSI images of esophageal resectates were classified in order to support the surgeon in localizing tumor borders during interventions.


headline-marker Prof. Andreas Melzer elected to “Academy of Medical Sciences”

Prof. Andreas Melzer was elected a fellow of the British “Academy of Medical Sciences”. The Academy is an independent institution in the United Kingdom representing the diversity of medical science. It has more than 1200 members and includes experts with outstanding contributions to advancing medical science, innovative research discoveries and translating developments into benefits for patients and society.


headline-marker Contributions to the Joint Conference of MGG and MDCV

ICCAS is represented with two contributions at the joint annual conference of the Mitteldeutsche Gesellschaft für Gastroenterologie (MGG) and the Mitteldeutsche Chirurgenvereinigung (MDCV) in Halle. Hannes Köhler holds a lecture on “Hyperspectral Imaging during esophagectomy for the measurement of ischemic conditioning effects of the gastric conduit”. Marianne Maktabi presents her research results on “Automatic tissue classification based on Hyperspectral Imaging” in the poster session.




headline-marker ICCAS shows HSI application at “Innovationstag Mittelstand”

At today’s “Innovationstag Mittelstand” of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), Dr. Claire Chalopin and Hannes Köhler will join the exhibition. The two scientists show a hyperspectral imaging system developed in cooperation with physicians from Leipzig University Hospital and the Dispective Vision GmbH. The system enables non-invasive measurements of cutaneous perfusion and surface moisture. The aim of this procedure is to detect patient status information during surgery.


headline-marker Prof. Melzer appointed visiting professor in South Korea

Prof. Andreas Melzer has been appointed visiting professor by the National Cancer Center Graduate School of Cancer Science and Policy in South Korea. At the teaching- and research center located in the east of Seoul, leading experts share their knowledge and practical experiences in the fields of research, therapy, cancer control and -policy.


headline-marker ICCAS included in further EU MODEX exercise

Once again, ICCAS scientists participated in an EU-wide civil protection exercise (MODEX) and could test the electronic patient file developed at ICCAS under real conditions. This time, the mission led to Tallinn (Estonia). The scenario was a meteorite impact with an accompanying flash flood. Three European emergency teams trained the cooperation to save many lives.


headline-marker Impressions of the SDC-presentation in Berlin

On April 10, the newly developed standard “Service-Oriented Device Connectivity” (SDC) was celebrated at the OR.NET booth at the DMEA in Berlin. At two demonstrator stations, the partners showed the dynamically networked operating room with devices from different manufacturers. Numerous guests followed the invitation and had the new possibilities of the standard explained.

headline-marker Kick-off two MR-Projects

At the beginning of April, the kick-off meetings of the two new BMBF-founded joint projects MR-Stents and MR-Thrombosis-Theragnostics took place. On this occasion, the project partners met at the  premises of the EPflex Feinwerktechnik GmbH in  Dettingen / Erms. Aim of the joint project MR-Stents is the worldwide first Magnetic Resonance (MR)-guided stent implantation. In the joint project MR-Thrombosis-Theragnostics the worldwide first Magnetic Resonance (MR)–guided diagnosis and minimially-invasive therapy will be developed.
