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.
This semester, we have a new structure, each participant or group of two participants are required to do a survey of literature review on a selected topic, spotting the challenges, limitations and potential room for improvements. Weeks later, the participant is required to present a novel/innovative idea preferably influenced by Machine Learning to overcome/mitigate the challenges and limitations. Note: The students are not required to implement this idea, however, this could be a good starting point for any potential collaboration with CAMP in terms of IDP, BA or MA thesis.
- [2016-06-14] Schedule is updated
- [2016-05-30] We have merged the two sessions of Free-Style Presentation in one session on June 16
- [2016-05-09] We have merged the two sessions of Literatire Review in one session on May 12
- [2016-05-25] We have now 8 confirmed topics assigned to 16 participants.
- [2016-04-19] A confirmation email has been sent to the students who have a confirmed topic, so they can start read the seed paper and follow up with their supervisor. For those who haven't received any confirmation email yet, we hope that we can assign you a topic by end of this week.
- [2016-04-18] Topics are assigned.
- [2016-04-13] Suggested seed papers are uploaded.
- [2016-04-11] Topics are updated.
- [2016-01-25] There will be a short introduction and organization meeting on 28th Jan. 2016 in 00.08.053.

Literature Review Report/Presentation
Each participant/group of two participants is/are required to prepare a survey of the literature review and present it in 30 mins
to the participants.
Report together with a presentation are required
Each participant is required to give a 15 min
free-style presentation about the selected topic and his innovative idea of employing Machine Learning in this area.
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.
Course Participants with Topics and Presentation schedule
* confirmed: both students confirmed their participation to the seminar (an email sent to start working on the paper) , * not yet: waiting the confirmation of the other student
Literature and Helpful Links
A lot of scientific publications can be found online.

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.
