Seminar Course Module IN0013
See schedule below
t Image-guided interventions are medical procedures that use computer-based systems to provide virtual image overlays to help the physician precisely visualize and target the surgical site. This field has been greatly expanded by the advances in medical imaging and computing power over the past 30 years. This course starts with a historical overview and then describes the component technologies of tracking, registration, visualization, and software. Clinical applications in neurosurgery, orthopedics, and the cardiac and thoracoabdominal areas are discussed, together with a description of an evolving technology named Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES). As the trend toward minimally invasive procedures continues, image-guided interventions will play an important role in enabling new procedures, while improving the accuracy and success of existing approaches. Despite this promise, the role of image-guided systems must be validated by clinical trials facilitated by partnerships between scientists and physicians if this field is to reach its full potential.

Each participant is required to give a 20 min
presentation about a selected topic. A template for the presentation slides can be found here
Each participant is required to prepare a report of 4-5 pages
for the other participants of the seminar. A latex template for the report can be found here
. The deadline for the report is one week after the presentation.
The seminar starts with an introduction meeting. Each topic will shortly be presented in this meeting. Participants are free to choose one of these topics as own assignment (this option is via until a defined deadline). Otherwise, topics will be randomly assigned.

Some further hints for working with references:
If you find useful resources that are not already listed here, please tell us, so we can add them for others. Thanks.
- JabRef is a Java program for comfortable working with Bibtex literature databases. Handy feature: if you know the PubMed ID for an article, JabRef can import data from there (via "Web Search/Medline").
- Mendeley is a cross-platform program for organising your references.
