In September this year Dr. Stefan Bohn, Philipp Liebmann and Christian Meißner travel to the International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) in Nagoya (Japan) to put up their research for discussion in specific workshops.
Dr. Bohn is co-organizer of the MICCAI workshop on “Systems and Architectures for Computer Assisted Interventions (SACAI)” and also lectures on “System monitoring and diagnostics architecture for networked medical devices”. The scientist from the MAI-group presents a system architecture and a communication framework that centrally monitored the state of networked medical devices and systems. In this way it is possible to meet the high security requirements in the life-critical area of the operating room.
Philipp Liebmann presents his work on “Validation of a surgical process model regarding the robustness of missing sensor information” on the 4th M2CAI workshop. It deals with the behavior of a process model relating to the problem of missing sensor information and with the derivation of possible compensation strategies.
At the same workshop Christian Meißner explained in his work entitled “Hierarchical approach for low-level surgical activity recognition” a concept that recognizes surgical activities on the basis of acceleration sensors and radio-frequency identification (RFID). Initially, all aspects of a single surgical activity are separated. The subsequent consolidation of aspects enables a substantiate assessment activity.
