| Computer Aided Neurosurgery
Neurosurgery is a complex
procedure where the surgeon has to integrate
multi-modal data to produce an optimum surgical
plan. Many times the region of interest is
surrounded by vital structures (such as motor
cortex, temporal cortex, vision and audio
sensors, etc.) and has irregular configurations.
Slight damage to such eloquent brain structures
can severely impair the patient.
CADI has developed CASMIL, an image guided neurosurgery toolkit
to produce optimum plans resulting in minimally invasive surgeries.
This system, originally developed at Wayne State University
has many innovative features needed by neurosurgeons that
are not available in other academic and commercial systems.
CASMIL is an integration of various vital modules, such as
rigid and non-rigid co-registration (image-image, image-atlas,
and image-patient), 3D segmentation, brain shift predictor
(BSP), knowledge based query tools, intelligent planning,
and augmented reality. A video of the demo can be found here. You may need this codec to view the demo. For a demo, please contact Dr.
| Teleradiology tool
The lab has integrated image
analysis algorithms developed as part of CASMIL into a web-enabled
teleradiology and remote diagnostics application. Compute
intensive image processing analysis is conducted on a server
platform, taking advantage of the labs' HPC expertise. The
user interaction is through a Java applet running on a web-browser. Please contact Dr. Vipin Chaudhary for a guest login,
collaborations and licensing.
| Brain and Liver Datasets
CADI has launched several data
collection projects, and has made available anotated liver
and brain datasets. The data and associated software will
be made available to academic institutions free of cost. Please
write to Dr. Vipin Chaudhary to obtain a copy of the data.
