May 3rd "The SPL: a quarter century of research and translation in technology and biomedicine" by Prof Ron Kikinis

Wednesday 3rd May, 1.00 pm
Darwin Building B40 LT

Speaker: Ron Kikinis, Surgical Planning Laboratory, Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston MA

Title: The SPL: a quarter century of research and translation in technology and biomedicine

Abstract: The Surgical Planning Laboratory (SPL) at the Department of Radiology of Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston was founded in 1990 for the investigation and use of image analysis technologies and tools for supporting image guided therapy (IGT). Providing end-to-end solutions to IGT problems requires a combination of different technologies and their integration into working systems. The presentation will cover some of the history and strategy behind the SPL and its parent program, the IGT program at BWH and discuss its current highlights, 3D Slicer and the AMIGO surgical suite.

Sjoerd Vos lectures at ExploreDTI workshop

 

Sjoerd Vos was one of three invited lecturers for the third ExploreDTI workshop organised by the PROVIDI lab at University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands, on March 27-29 2017. This workshop was a mix of background and technical lectures on diffusion MRI, with hands-on session on how to analyse diffusion MRI data in ExploreDTI.

Paper accepted at IEEE Transactions on Robotics

Our paper titled "Unified Tracking and Shape Estimation for Concentric Tube Robots", led by Alessandro Vandini, was accepted for publication at the IEEE Trans. Robotics. The paper is the first to propose a joint energy optimisation framework that handles the tracking and 3D shape estimation of continuum robots simultaneously. Please find the pre-print here.
