At least three major trends in surgical intervention have emerged over the last decade: a move toward more minimally invasive (or non-invasive) approach to the surgical target; the development of high-precision treatment delivery techniques; and the increasing role of multi-modality intraoperative imaging in support of such procedures. This symposium includes invited presentations on recent advances in each of these areas and the emerging role for medical physics research in the development and translation of high-precision interventional techniques. The four speakers are:
- (1)Keyvan Farahani, “Image-guided focused ultrasound surgery and therapy”
- (2)Jeffrey H. Siewerdsen, “Advances in image registration and reconstruction for image-guided neurosurgery”
- (3)Tina Kapur, “Image-guided surgery and interventions in the advanced multimodality image-guided operating (AMIGO) suite”
- (4)Raj Shekhar, “Multimodality image-guided interventions: Multimodality for the rest of us”
- 1.Understand the principles and applications of HIFU in surgical ablation.
- 2.Learn about recent advances in 3D–2D and 3D deformable image registration in support of surgical safety and precision.
- 3.Learn about recent advances in model-based 3D image reconstruction in application to intraoperative 3D imaging.
- 4.Understand the multi-modality imaging technologies and clinical applications investigated in the AMIGO suite.
- 5.Understand the emerging need and techniques to implement multi-modality image guidance in surgical applications such as neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, vascular surgery, and interventional radiology.
