PhD Defense by Patrick Wucherer
The aim of the research work was to investigate the development of a simulated operating room which could be an option for conducting assessment and training of surgical skills within a multidisciplinary controlled environment. The findings will enable other national/international research and simulation centers to develop more sophisticated training environments and the hope exists that this work will trigger a new generation of simulators which will eventually improve medical education of multidisciplinary teams and hence increase patient safety and raise the quality of patient care.

PhD defense by Pierre Chatelain: Quality-Driven Control of a Robotized Ultrasound Probe
This thesis deals with the control of image quality for a robot-held ultrasound probe. The ultrasound signal quality within the image is represented by a confidence map, which is used to design a servo control law for optimizing the placement of the ultrasound probe. A control fusion is also proposed to optimize the acoustic window for a specific anatomical target tracked in the ultrasound images. These methods are illustrated via experiments on phantom and on a human volunteer.

PhD Defense by Bertram Drost
Machine vision is a technologically and economically important field of computer vision. It eases automatization of inspection and manipulation tasks, which in turn enables cost savings and quality improvement in industrial processes. Usually, 2D or intensity images are used for such applications. However, thanks to several technological advances, nowadays there are sensors available that allow depth or 3D measurements with high resolution, frequency and accuracy at a reasonable cost. Such 3D data enables new applications that are difficult or impossible to implement with 2D images only.
