This year, the 12th Annual Conference of the German Society for Computer and Roboter-Assisted Surgery (CURAC) was held in Innsbruck from 28 to 30 November. ICCAS was represented by Professor Thomas Neumuth, Dr Kerstin Denecke and Dr Claire Chalopin.
Dr Chalopin introduced a “Method for the evaluation of ultrasound perfusion for brain tumor surgery”, which was developed in collaboration with the Department of Simulation and Graphics at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and the Department of Neurosurgery at Leipzig University Hospital.
Congratulations go to Stefan Franke! The graduated computer scientist from the research field Model -based Automation and Integration (MAI) won this year’s Poster Award of CURAC Annual Conference with his contribution “A surgical assistance system for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation based on a Magic Lens concept”. It presents an intraoperative assistance system which visualizes anatomical structures under the patient’s skin during the implementation of minimally invasive cardiac interventions.
