For this year’s Think Tank, which took place between the 8th and 10th of October, renowned scientists from all around the world traveled to Leipzig to advise on the latest research and developments in the field of computer assisted surgery. During the two-day program, the current research fields of ICCAS and future areas of scientific work in Leipzig were presented and discussed.
Sandra von Sachsen gave a lecture on “model-based support for stent graft selection” at the 28th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Vascular Surgery (DGG), which took place between the third and the 6th of October 2012 in Wiesbaden. She presented research results for the development of an evaluation module for simulation results. This will allow a comparison between vascular prostheses and the patient-specific vessel.
The focus of the studies presented was the discussion and evaluation of the new planning method in collaboration with 15 vascular surgeons.
Dr. Thomas Neumuth, Stefan Bohn and Stefan Franke will represent the ICCAS at this year’s “15th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI)” from May 01 to 05 October in Nice.
Dr. Thomas Neumuth will represent the ICCAS as a member of the Program Committee. Furthermore he also directs the “3rd Workshop on Modeling and Monitoring of Computer Assisted Interventions”. This third workshop discusses the modern methods of collecting, analyzing, modeling and monitoring of surgical / interventional procedures within this well-established forum.
Stefan Bohn takes over at the “Fifth International Workshop on Systems and Architectures for Computer Assisted Interventions (SACAI)” moderating a roundtable discussion with members of the medical technology industry on interoperability in the computer-assisted surgery. He also holds a lecture entitled “An integration architecture with centralized control for medical devices in the digital operating room.”
Stefan Franke will present his latest works of ICCAS for workflow management in the operating room. At the workshop “M2CAI 2012 – 3rd Workshop on Modeling and Monitoring of Computer Assisted Interventions” he will give a presentation about “Prediction of remaining procedure time from current surgical activities”. The aim of the work is to develop a technical assistance system to support the time and resource management in modern operating rooms.
Stefan Bohn represented ICCAS at this year’s “24th International Conference of the Society for Medical Innovation and Technology (SMIT)”, from the 20th to 22 September in Barcelona. Stefan Bohn presented his Poster “A modular and open OR integration system and its application to neurosurgery.”
The aim of the work is to develop a modular operating integration architecture based on open standards that integrates medical devices from different manufacturers at the surgical workspace.
At this year’s 57th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Medical computer science, Biometry and Epidemiology, Sandra von Sachsen presented her research on the topic: “Continuous process chain for integration of a patient-specific finite element model in the EVAR-planning process.”. The aim of the present work is a quantitative evaluation of vascular prostheses that are intended to support the vascular surgeon perspective in the selection of optimal stent-grafts for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms. The corresponding abstract is available at: http://www.egms.de/static/de/meetings/gmds2012/12gmds017.shtml
01.09.2012 will be the start for the R & D major project “OR.NET” funded by the BMBF with a total of approx. 15 million euro, with a total of 41 partners and under the leadership of the University of Heidelberg, the technical University of Munich and the RWTH Aachen. The aim of the project is the design, evaluation and implementation of concepts for vendor-independent and dynamic networks for the often very innovative but also very different medical components into existing operating rooms and IT infrastructures with the aim of expanding the overall functionality.
ICCAS takes over in this project including a major role in the standardization of technical standards, processes and protocols that are important for the dynamic linking. With the establishment of a demonstrator, the exemplary implementation of a dynamic integration and networking will be tested and presented in an operating room environment.
With the new video series called the “ICCAS Research Journal” the Innovation Center for Computer Assisted Surgery deomonstrates that science does not allways have to look complicated. Various current projects from our researchers are presented in a very simple way that everyone can understand and enjoy.
Currently there are two videos available – the “Surgical Process Navigator” project by Stefan Franke and the “Srugical Blackbox” project by Max Rockstroh. Both of them being a part of the Modelbased Automation and Integration group (MAI). Since the journal will get updated regulary it’s possible to follow us on our YouTube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzZ-8xKav2MzxdM8qwOVzeQ).
