The objective of this study is to develop software and hardware platform to perform robot-assisted surgery in the intelligent operating room. We have formulated three specific goals for AIST-BWH core: 1) design extensions to open-source software 3D Slicer to support the handling, fusion, and display of massive multi-modality data for image guided surgery of brain tumor, 2) develop versatile and portable inter-device communication mechanism for robotics surgery system, 3) develop open-source software engineering mechanism for project-side development, 4) validate planned extensions through use-case scenario evaluations and phantom data that simulate multi-modality image guided brain tumor surgery.
