Project Description

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • Plus toolkit provides access to numerous hardware devices (imaging devices, tracking devices, navigations systems, sensors, etc.) and makes it available through OpenIGTLink protocol
  • Create a common library, OpenIGTLinkIO that makes communication with Plus (and OpenIGTLink-compatible devices or software) very simple:
    • Ensure software interoperability
    • Share software maintenance workload
    • Make it easy to share new features
  • Add specific features for tracked ultrasound and and augmented reality in surgical navigation
  • Create a complete dataset/Plus config to simulate interaction between a client using OpenIGTLinkIO and the Plus toolkit
  • Merge IGSIO/OpenIGTLink into OpenIGTLink and close the IGSIO/OpenIGTLink repository
  • Develop a common high-level GUI to control OpenIGTLinkIO devices
