Image Guided Surgeries - From Bench to Bedside and Back
Winter term 2016/17
Participants learn the basics of medical applications in minimally invasive image guided surgery and interventions. They gain the knowledge to understand the complex medical environment as well as its challenges in order to improve these procedures with the focus on clinical workflow and imaging in the operating theatre of the future. With knowledge about imaging technology and image processing algorithms participants will be able to model and master complex solutions. Besides the medical and technical knowledge, definition of clinical, technical projects in the field of intra operative imaging and navigation for minimal invasive surgery is the core focus during the course. Exposure to real world problems, observing an intervention at our clinical partner sites makes this a unique setup for modeling and implementing creative solutions to improve the care.
A new type of real world educational course participants will:
- learn the basics of some intraoperative and minimal-invasive surgeries explained in application examples and case reports/videos
- work in teams
- participate in an real surgery, document and analyze the procedure – from OR planning through patient anesthesia all the way to the finish
- directly communicate to the surgeons about the procedure
- develop a concept / solution to support procedures including interfaces, logistical approaches, use of technologies
- work in your teams analyzing these processes and come-up with possible improvements (use of diagnostic imaging, logistical improvements, ...)
- try to translate that into an actual proposal for the surgical team
- make two presentation to the class
- on the procedure itself
- final presentation including a proposal for a solution for the surgical teams

Course Language: English
Time, Location & Requirements
Lecture: The lecture will be held in 4 blocks of 4 hours each (9:00am to 01:00pm), and one final seminar trip. The dates are:
Please be prepared for a trip to the Alps for the final lecture including interesting discussions, additional insights, team building activities, lots of fun. Ask some of your co-students who attended the lectures in the past about the value and content of this final lecture.
- Block 1: October 21st
- Block 2: November 11th
- Block 3: November 25th
- Block 4: December 16th
- Block 5: January 12th - 13th (2-day/1 over-night Seminar Trip to a Mountain Hut)
MI 00.08.038 for Oct 21st (first block), all other blocks in MI 01.09.014
We will have teams working on NOTES procedures, conventional laparoscopy / bronchoscopy, arthroscopy, stenting interventions, and possibly other. The surgeries will be performed in Munich hospitals. The teams will be asked to contact the head surgeons for an appointment and arrange for a Q&A session before and/or after the surgery. The surgery should be well documented -- please use an engineering approach to analyze the procedures.
- The classes and assignments are in English
- Assignments are to be composed in English only
There are assignements as preperation for every lecture block:
- Assignment 1 (before lecture block 1):
- Assignment 2 (send via 2 days before lecture block 2 / presented during lecture block 3):
- Analysis of your OR visit application domain in form of a 10min presentation (details will be provided in the lecture block 1)
- Assignment 3 (2 days before lecture block 3):
- Evaluation and classification and usage of medical imaging (details will be provided in the lecture block 2)
- Midterm presentation (Powerpoint or equivalent): duration 10 minutes including the medical basics of the procedure, equipment used, evaluation of procedure (logistics, use of equipment, timing, who is involved and individual roles, other relevant information, pain gain analysis, and next steps ...)
- Final Presentation (Powerpoint or equivalent): duration 15 minutes with your application domain introduction, engineering and computer science relevant evaluation, identification of process improvement, actual process improvement (pick one topic) e.g. with diagnostic imaging (improve quality and surgical accuracy? improve timing of procedure? forensic information? cost improvement?) and presentation of a concept, idea or prototype for improvement
- Concept Poster: prepare an A0 poster (use CAMP Template) on the findings, if possible create a prototype or concept of a solution that supports your observed procedure
Please notice the change of seminar room!!
- Grading will be based on attendance and active participation (10%), assignments (10%), the midterm presentation (10%), the final group presentation (15%), the proposal document and project work (35%), and a written test (45 minutes) on the technology basics (20%)
- One excused (E-Mail at least two days prior to lecture Dr. Jörg Traub with reason) absence will be accepted, two excused absences will cause a "4" in attendance, a non-excused absence will result in the failure of the course. That includes the attendance of the surgeries and Q&A sessions. The first block is absolutely mandatory!
- Clinical collaborators include Dr. Simon Weidert (Trauma Surgery, Navigated Orthopedic Surgery), OA Dr. S. Paepke (Minimal Invasive, Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy), Prof. Dr. Hubert Hautmann (Pneumologie, Navigated Bronchoscopy), Dr. A. Schneider and Prof. Dr. Hubertus Feußner (Minimal Invasive, Laparoscopic Surgery) ... (more to follow).
