MPHYGB07: Computer-assisted Surgery and Therapy
Coursework and Examination
Dr. Tom Vercauteren
Aims and Objectives
The module covers how information is computationally extracted from medical images and related sensors and how this is used to plan and guide clinical interventions including surgery and therapy.
This module focuses on algorithms and software to extract information from pre-operative and intra-operative medical images as well as other medical sensors and the use of that information to guide clinicians in their interventions such as surgery and other forms of therapy. The module is provided by members of the Centre for Medical Image Computing. Topics include:
- Surgical Planning
- Surgical Navigation and Instrument Tracking
- Intra-operative Multimodal Image Fusion
- Applications of Computer Vision Tools to Endoscopic Imaging and Robotic Surgery
- Image-guided Radiotherapy
