Modeling Tumor Cellularity in Newly Diagnosed GBMs using MR Imaging and Spectroscopy
No opinion
In this paper, we analyze the relationship between parameters of brain tumors obtained through in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in vivo magneticnresonance spectroscopy (MRS), and ex vivo immunohistochemistry (IHC). The goal of our project is to [...]

Biomarker Detection in Whole Slide Imaging based on Statistical Color Models
No opinion
This paper presents a technique for immunostaining biomarker detection in digital slides. We treat immunostaining detection as a color image analysis problem and build statistical color models using a large number of labeled positive and negative [...]

Validation of Liver Tumor Segmentation in CT Scans by Relating Manual and Algorithmic Performance - A Preliminary Study
No opinion
The development of segmentation algorithms for liver tumors in CT scans has found growing attention in recent years. The validation of these methods, however, is often treated as a subordinate task. In this article, we review existing approaches and present [...]

Atlas to Image-with-Tumor Registration Based on Demons and Deformation Inpainting
No opinion
This paper presents a method for nonlinear registration of images, where there exists no one-to-one correspondence in parts of the image. Such a situation occurs for instance in the case where an atlas of normal anatomy shall be matched to pathological data, [...]

Flexible architecture and modularity requirements for image guided cardiovascular surgeries
No opinion
Research and development of image guided surgery techniques requires software that provides a high degree of flexibility, with easy access to reliable functionality for common tasks. The goal of this paper is to highlight this claim in the context of image [...]

A modular architecture for biomanipulation
No opinion
The Johns Hopkins University Surgical Assistant Workstation (SAW) modular software framework provides support for robotic devices, imaging sensors and a visualization pipeline for rapid prototyping, primarily for surgical research systems. We extend the SAW [...]

ReachIN: A Modular Vision Based Interface for Teleoperation
No opinion
Teleoperation is currently the dominant form of instrument control for surgical robotics. For example, the mechanical masters in the da Vinci surgical system provides a stable, precise interface for teleoperation, allowing execution of delicate tasks in [...]

Framework of US-guided therapeutic HIFU system for renal diseases
No opinion
The authors describe a framework for the US-guided therapeutic HIFU system for renal diseases. In particular, the HIFU system is integrated with robotic servoing capability so as to track quasi-periodically moving renal tumors and stones. The system is [...]

Extending MITK by a real-time online video overlay navigation system for minimally invasive surgery
No opinion
The purpose of this paper is to present our extension of the MITK toolkit by a real-time navigation system for computer assisted surgery. The system was developed with laparoscopic partial nephrectomies as a first application scenario. The main goal of the [...]

User Interface Integration and Remote Control for Modular Surgical Assist Systems
No opinion
Today’s operating rooms consist of numerous medical devices, clinical IT systems and systems for computer assisted surgery. The majority of these systems comes from different vendors and has different user interface designs and interaction schemes. This [...]
