OpenITGLinkMUSiiC: A Standard Communications Protocol for Advanced Ultrasound Research
No opinion
Ultrasound imaging is the most popular and safe diagnostic medical imaging modality. Over the past years, a considerable number of studies have been conducted on new medical ultrasound imaging modalities such as ultrasound-based elasticity imaging, [...]

OpenIGTLink Protocol Version 2
No opinion
In this paper, we review the technical details of new features in OpenIGTLink version 2. OpenIGTLink is a free open-source network communication protocol designed for data exchange among devices and software. Since the first release of version 1.0 protocol [...]

TiCoLi - An Open Software Library for Device Integration in the Digital OR based on Open Software and Open Standards
No opinion
Purpose The lack of interfaces for system integration in the Operating Room (OR) has been recognized as one of the major factors to impede efficient OR turnover procedures as well as efficient intraoperative data handling and ergonomics in the OR. A software [...]

Extending the tracking device support in the Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK): CamBar B2, EasyTrack 500, and Active Polaris
No opinion
The Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK) provides tracker interfaces for various tracking devices. The tracker component of IGSTK was extended with three new tracking interfaces: CamBar B2, EasyTrack 500, and Active Polaris. Using an IGSTK application we [...]

Towards an open-source pipeline for patient-specific neurosurgery simulation
starstarstarstarstar
Surgery simulation is a technology based on interactive biomechanics as well as haptic and visual rendering for training novice surgeons. Another important component of a surgery simulator is the representation of a patient's anatomy in terms of simple [...]

Prototyping a Hybrid Cooperative and Tele-robotic Surgical System for Retinal Microsurgery
No opinion
This paper presents the design of a tele-robotic microsurgical platform designed for development of cooperative and tele-operative control schemes, sensor based smart instruments, user interfaces and new surgical techniques with eye surgery as the driving [...]

Component-based software for dynamic configuration and control of computer assisted intervention systems
No opinion
This paper presents the rationale for the use of a component-based architecture for computer-assisted intervention (CAI) systems, including the ability to reuse components and to easily develop distributed systems. We introduce three additional capabilities, [...]

A software architecture for cell manipulation
No opinion
A software architecture has been developed for image-guided robot-assisted cell manipulation. The system provides tools for positioning and navigation of multiple micromanipulators under live microscope images. The main application of this system is in [...]

Kinematics Based Safety Operation Mechanism for Robotic Surgery extending the JHU SAW Framework
No opinion
As robotic surgery gains popularity [1, 2, 3], methods for improving situational awareness during tele- operation have become an active area of research. Literature has attempted to incorporate haptic feedback displays to enhance and improve user performance. [...]

Integration of a Robotic Endoscope Holder with the Surgical Assistant Workstation Software Framework
No opinion
We have integrated the Philips Research robot arm with the Johns Hopkins cisst library, an open-source platform for computer assisted surgical intervention, for assistance during minimally invasive cardiac surgery using image-based steering of an endoscope. [...]
