Interdiziplinäres Projekt (IDP) Mathematik oder Medizin: Workflow analysis of beta-probe guided surgery

Advisor: Nassir Navab

Abstract

In minimally invasive tumor resection, the desirable goal is to perform a minimal but complete removal of cancerous cells. In the last decades interventional nuclear medicine probes supported the detection of remaining tumor cells. However, scanning the patient with an intraoperative probe and applying the treatment are not done simultaneously. In the past we extended the one dimensional signal of a nuclear probe to a four dimensional signal including the spatial information of the distal end of the probe (current status). This signal can be then used to guide the surgeon in the resection of residual tissue and thus increase its spatial accuracy while allowing minimal impact on the patient. The next step is to prepare clinical experiments and integrate the solution into the clinical workflow. The student in charge of this project will contribute in that step by analysing the clinical workflow of beta-probe-guided surgery according with the perpective of our group (CAMP research on workflow).
