At this year’s Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery Congress (CARS), taking place from 20 to 23 June in Berlin, Prof. Thomas Neumuth will chair a special session dealing with the very topical issue “Technical Standardization in the Operating Room”. Benefits, potentials, use cases and the current standards will be discussed.
Furthermore, there will be ICCAS contributions on the topic “Intelligent Operating Room” at the 20th IFCARS / SPIE / ISCAS Joint Workshop. ICCAS’s topics are the design and validation of a context-aware surgical working environment and the demands on navigation intelligence in computer-assisted endoscopic ENT-surgery.
Prof. Andreas Melzer will strengthen the clinical input of the session “Clinical Decision Making”. ICCAS-lectures on the topics “A Knowledge-based data entry form for high quality clinical data collection” and “Information architecture for a patient-specific dashboard in head and neck tumor boards” will be held there.
Together with Prof. Heinz U. Lemke, Erik Schreiber will lead the IHE Session. There, he will present current work items for IHE integration profiles and Dr. Stefan Franke will talk about emerging standards for interoperability of medical systems.
Finally, Dr. Claire Chalopin will present posters on the topics “Image-based connector for automatic identification of ultrasound parameter values” and “Measurement of moisture at skin surface with Hyperspectral Imaging”.
