Project Description

The project aims to discuss the concept of integrative OR environments from a holistic neurosurgical design perspective. Open questions to be addressed include qualitative standardization of information visualization for intraoperative use, integration of PACS and non-PACS imaging data sets, and ready-to-use image control setup operated by surgeons and staff. During project week, the main focus will be on more elaborate use of already existing technology (e.g. multi-window mode of 3D Slicer).

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • create, discuss and refine design concept of surgical (touch) interface for intraoperative multimodal and multi-source image control
  • define relevant image data sources for standard and research procedures
  • discuss and define standard display settings, potentially including automation of basic aspects
  • prepare implementation of direct interaction in the OR
  • decision for further exploration of 3DSlicer as tool for image viewing and image control in neurosurgery
  • pre-analysis and evaluation of intraoperative image setup and control
    • identification of primary (PACS) and optional (non-PACS) image sources by type of case
    • testing freedom of dynamic interaction with and manipulation of customized imaging display (number, size and arrangement of windowed content)
  • start scenario: remote image control by dedicated person (delegation)
  • future scenario: direct control by surgeon (e.g. via sterile touch screen)
